EDITORS COMMENTS
Drilling an artesian well at Berrechid during the French Campaign in Morocco (1907-1908) In 1907, France launched a military campaign to conquer and colonize Morocco, marking the beginning of a tumultuous period in North African history. This photograph captures a pivotal moment in that campaign: the drilling of an artesian well at Berrechid, a strategic location along the northern coast of Morocco. The drill team, likely comprised of French soldiers or engineers, work tirelessly to tap into the region's underground water source. The rigging and machinery are simple yet effective, reflecting the resourcefulness and determination of those involved in this colonial endeavor. As part of France's "Pacification of Morocco," this well-drilling operation aimed to establish control over local resources and infrastructure. The conquest was marked by violence and resistance from Moroccan forces, as well as tensions with other European powers vying for influence in the region. This photograph serves as a poignant reminder of the complex historical context surrounding colonialism and its lasting impact on global politics today. It also highlights the human labor and ingenuity required to build infrastructure during times of conflict.
