Obe fotografije datiraju iz 1891. godine. U pitanju su dve žene poreklom iz Južne Afrike koje su u datom trenutku boravile u Londonu kao pripadnice hora koji je nastupao pred kraljicom Viktorijom.
The African Choir were a group of young South African singers that toured Britain between 1891 and 1893. They were formed to raise funds for a Christian school in their home country and performed for Queen Victoria at Osborne House, a royal residence on the Isle of Wight. At some point during their stay, they visited the studio of the ‘London Stereoscopic Company’ to have group and individual portraits made on plate-glass negatives. That long-lost series of photographs, unseen for 120 years, is the dramatic centrepiece of an illuminating new exhibition called ‘Black Chronicles II’.
