KRUGER, Paul  (1825-1904) – slide [10]


this is a set assembled from various producers. The slides listed as number 7, 22 and 24 were in the same box between the other slides but do not show a number of the black pen, so they might have been shown at other occasions. Also, image number 24 might ot belong to this slide set (I am not sure if it shows a view in Colonial South Africa). Images 1 and 2 show the German city of Hanau which I do not know why.they seem to be included in the lecture because of the numbering on the slides.
