Original Photograph of a Zulu Man - Mistakenly Captioned as King Cetewayo

Regular price $72.00 Sale

Original cdv photograph of a Zulu man wearing his hair in an elaborate style. He is erroneously identified as 'Cetewayo, The Zulu King'. Images of King Cetshwayo were in great demand at the time of his visit to London in 1882, and photographers sometimes used images of otherwise unidentified Zulu men to satisfy the public curiosity. This image was produced by the London Stereoscopic and Photographic Company (mark on back) which further suggests a link with the king's visit. Nice clear image in good condition,
