EDITORS COMMENTS
Drilling an Artesian Well at Berrechid: A Milestone in the French Campaign in Morocco (1907-1908) This evocative image captures the moment of progress and determination during the French Campaign in Morocco (1907-1908), as a team of French engineers drill an artesian well in the town of Berrechid. The campaign, also known as the Invasion of Morocco or the Pacification of Morocco, marked the beginning of French colonial rule in the North African country, lasting from 1907 until 1934. The drilling process was a significant undertaking, symbolizing the French efforts to modernize and develop Morocco's infrastructure. Artesian wells were essential for providing a reliable water source, especially in the arid regions. This well, located in Berrechid, was one of many that the French established during their conquest. The photograph showcases the intricacies of the drilling process, with a team of workers diligently operating the drill and the machinery in the background. The Moroccan onlookers, dressed in traditional attire, observe the scene with curiosity and interest. The image underscores the cultural exchange and interaction between the French colonizers and the Moroccan population during this period. The French Campaign in Morocco was a pivotal moment in North African history, shaping the region's political, social, and economic landscape for decades to come. This photograph serves as a testament to the determination, innovation, and the far-reaching impact of the French colonial endeavor in Morocco.
