Description

Details

Photographs follow a journey from London to Folkestone, across the channel through Dijon to Marseilles and then from Marseilles to Algiers by boat. Dated from the two boats in the photographs. The photographer travels on the SS Charles-Roux, a ship build in 1908 and France's first turbine steamer. The ship was in service until 1936. In one of the photographs at the docks at Marseilles there is a photograph of the Theodore Mante. The Theodore Mante was build in 1912 and was a passenger steam ship. However it only retained this name until 1917 when it was renamed Mustapha II. Therefore this album is definitely from between 1912 and 1917. It is highly likely that these photographs are Pre-World War I. The Theodore Mante became the Margit and in 1939 arrived in Malta when war broke out. Due to an air raid on the 19th April 1941 the vessel was hit and suffered extensive damage. It sunk and was not discovered until the 1970s. 48 photographs on 12 leaves. Each photograph is captioned with the location and subject of the image. To the front pastedown is painted the journey undertaken with the title 'A Trip to North Africa'. There is a hand-painted map indicating the places visited. These photographs also have several images of the Paris, Lyons & Mediterranean Railway. In the photograph of Charing Cross, London, there is a woman in the foreground holding a newspaper with the headline clear 'Women Mobbed at Protest', clearly a reference to the Suffragist movement of the time.
