Scope and Contents
The Gordon James Collection consists of three albums of photographs taken in South Africa, 1900-1905. They show early mining operations (presumably for copper) in Tsumeb, Guchab, and Asis, 1900-1901; and scenery, daily life, and game animals. It is not clear whether James took the photographs himself.
