Henry Morton Stanley


The Welsh-born U.S. journalist and explorer Henry Morton Stanley (1841-1904) made four expeditions in Africa. He and Livingstone met at Ujiji in 1871 and explored Lake Tanganyika together. Between 1874 and 1877 Stanley traced the course of the Congo river to the sea, later establishing the Congo Free State (Zaire) between 1878 and 1884. On his final expedition (1887-1889) he charted much of the interior.

Photographer unidentified. The reverse of the mount carries an advertisement for E. Moses and Son, Merchant Tailors and Outfitters, so presumably the carte was given away as some sort of promotion or advertisement.
