Album of photographs taken by A.D. while A.D.C. Kurmuk. With the exception of the first 8 photographs which illustrate the journey by sea to the Sudan, all photographs have detailed captions (not visible in the album) which have been recorded verbatim below:
SAD.717/1/9
The 'sunshine express' on the Desert Railway between Port Sudan and Khartoum and some of the 1926 probationers
SAD.717/1/11
A typical station on the Port Sudan-Khartoum line
SAD.717/1/12
View of the mess from the river
SAD.717/1/13
The mudirieh from the river
SAD.717/1/14
The mess, Singa. My rooms are on the ground floor at this end. The door behind the foot of the stairs leads into my bathroom. One window of my sitting room is out of sight behind the pillar to the right of the bottom of the stairs and a narrow strip of one of the others appears on the right of the corner pillar of the verandah
SAD.717/1/15
The mudiria, Singa as seen when approached from the direction of the Mess
SAD.717/1/16
The view from the roof of the mess, looking S.E. (up the Nile). The river shows through the trees on the left. The big building on the right is the "Mudiria" (Prov. H.Q.), the next big building is the mosque, then after a gap, the white building above the dark tree is the chief Greek shop and the Merkaz appears very small seeming to touch it on the right. The garden is beyond the right hand bit of water
SAD.717/1/17
From the roofs of the Mudiria, looking down the road. The two big trees breaking the horizon on the left give the position of the garden. The river is to the left. The nearest building is the school and the Merkaz just appears beyond it. The lines are a light railway, used for hand trolleys taking water to the prison etc., I proceed along this road several times daily
SAD.717/1/18
The "Merkaz" or "Zaptia" - my office. The windows of my room are hidden by the two trees on the left. Petitioners etc., sit [and] wait under the straw shelter in front. The Union Jack and Egyptian flag float on either side of the steps. The mess is half a mile to the right and I took this with my back to the river
SAD.717/1/19
The new D.C.'s house nearly complete (taken to complete Budgett's series)
SAD.717/1/20
In the shopping area - Singa
SAD.717/1/21
In the shopping area - Singa
SAD.717/1/22
A Boulevard in Singa - the only street with a lot of trees in it
SAD.717/1/23
In the foreground the Peddlars' market. These stalls have to be taken down at night. In the background the Greek stores, from which I buy everything from ? to macaroni. The river lies ?? mile away beyond the stalls
SAD.717/1/24
Opposite the mess. Two native boats rowing down stream. The sailing is done at this time of year so the mast is laid horizontally on supports and becomes the roof-beam; and one builds a house of mats and grass. All the crew row in the bows. Note the tiller and huge rudder. The water is now over the sand bank and up to the trees in the background.
SAD.717/1/25
The Post-boat. It is propelled by one big paddle wheel in the stern. It pushes two barges and has one beside it as well on the other side (also opposite the mess)
SAD.717/1/26
The equivalent of the Singa Water Board. Donkeys coming up from the river with their water skins filled. Each carries a skin on each side. Note the wide use of the petrol can, including one being carried by a lady on her head. The people with decayed [?] felt hats are Abyssinian. The fact that the jetty on the right will be submerged, even with the platform raised to the top of the uprights gives you an idea of what the flood is like
SAD.717/1/27
A 'sagia' at work. The bulls go round and cause the upright bit of wood which is tapered at the top to revolve. On this, out of sight, is a (wooden) cog wheel meshing at right angles with one on the axle of the water wheel itself, which takes a rope belt with the jars attached to it. Each as it reaches the top pours (some of) its water into a trough and thence into the channel
SAD.717/1/28
A native boat approaching the 'docks' at Singa
SAD.717/1/29
S.G.S. Sultan Hussein - often my temporary home
SAD.717/1/30
A native boat. Showing how the sail is stowed by being furled upwards against the long yard. The specs visible ?? and ?? way up the latter are men doing the furling
SAD.717/1/31
The 'floating zoo' on its way from Singa to Makwar on board S.G.S. Sultan Hussein (tied up at the Fellata village - MAYERNO)
SAD.717/1/32
On the move - the giraffe 'looking out of the window'
SAD.717/1/33
Lion cub and 'keeper' - Singa Zoo. [It] has a tendency to rickets and is fed on malt and cod liver oil with milk from a goat
SAD.717/1/34
Giraffe and Taytel [?] - quite happy together

SAD.717/1/43
A small part only of the Sennar Dam
SAD.717/1/44
A general view of the pleasure part of Singa garden. The boys are standing on one tennis court and the other is just behind them. There is a banana patch out of sight beyond the dark hedge on the left and the general vegetable part is behind the big tree in the middle. The boys pick up the tennis-balls
SAD.717/1/45
Where my bananas grow in Singa garden. Note the curious effect produced by the wind blowing the leaves into shreds. A bunch of bananas can be seen on the right
SAD.717/1/46
This was an attempt to photograph rain which has not really come off except for the generally rather odd look of things and for the white streaks just left of the pillar, which are the water pouring out of one of the many pipes which drain the roof. This is looking out of the front door of the Mess towards the river
SAD.717/1/47
Budgett's house, with the Merkaz in the background. (Fear there will be several of this rather dull subject, as he gave me some films specially to keep him informed of progress)
SAD.717/1/48
'Shidding up' after the mid-day halt in a small village. The right hand figure is Osman my body-servant, next my camel-men, with the pack I always used motor-biking slung on his shoulder. The other is a hireling. The camels shown are my own 3 - the middle one being the one I ride. The grass affair on the right is the humblest kind of hut with a flat roof (the village was Saboonibe)
SAD.717/1/49
A typical fairly poor village. I spent the middle of a day in the hut on the left which, as you see, is neat and clean-looking (Village of Aba Sorra)
SAD.717/1/50
A typical "rest house" where one spends nights on trek (Village of Abu Huk [?]). Ground plan thus:
ACB wall is opaque. BDA is wicker work to let draught through. AX is an opaque partition, YZ a wicker one. Shaded part is the bathroom and dressing room. One sleeps in the open
SAD.717/1/51
Where we had lunch on our excursion to the Dinder on July 1st - the Abu Hashim rest house. The Ford can be made out just to the right of the rest house. We actually sat outside under the big tree which contained several monkeys on our arrival
SAD.717/1/52
A view of the sort which one meets with further south. The palms are small Dom palms (from the point of which comes 'vegetable ivory'). The large and curiously tapering tree on the left is a tebeldi, the trunks of which sometimes reach astonishing sizes (Abu Rawad [?] near Roseires).
SAD.717/1/53
Getting water up from a well in the same way as it has been done since the beginning of time. The lady on the left is carrying her 'bucket' full, to pour the water into the raised mud trough on the extreme left, from which her animals will shortly drink as in the other picture
SAD.717/1/54
A.W.M.D. on camel. Singa 1927
SAD.717/1/55
On the river bank, a nomad Arab and his two camels, which are drinking out of the basin he holds for them
SAD.717/1/56
A busy human and animal scene at the well. Half one of my policemen appears on the extreme right
SAD.717/1/57
On the river bank; refreshment for the moke. Note the native saddle on the other moke
SAD.717/1/58
Carrying water up from the river in gourds. Note the men sitting idly on the top of the bank
SAD.717/1/59
Part of a huge herd of camels belonging to Nomad Arabs returning from watering. The misty effect is caused by the clouds of dust (Hegeirat)
SAD.717/1/60
Tebeldis near Roseires. The Nile in the background (Note the Blue Nile is here doing 'its long journey across the sands of the Sudan' - see 'The Times')
SAD.717/1/61
Palms and tebeldis at Roseires
SAD.717/1/62
Two bushes of Kitr (Acacia Mellifua) in flower (masses of white flowers - a little difficult to make out at first in the photo)

Motoring between Karkoj and Abu Hashim in October
SAD.717/1/64
A tebeldi flanked by young Dom (dome) palms
SAD.717/1/65
Two ladies doing their share of the transport. A little bit of the steamer appears on the left and a good chunk of Nile in the middle distance. This is one of the places which were the object of my first two trips on the steamer
SAD.717/1/66
A tebeldi - the rather nightmare - like tree with the huge trunk -just coming into leaf. Unfortunately no person to give the scale, but the object at the roots to the left is a donkey saddle and the dog a little further to the left is the size of a fair-sized fox terrier
SAD.717/1/67
'Singa's savernake' in the sunt forest. The trees just coming into leaf. They are like our acacias but with smaller leaves and yellow flowers. The seeds - or rather seed-pods are used in tanning, being exported from Singa to England
SAD.717/1/68
Some of the older generation putting maize into sacks. Note the height of the stalk on the right
SAD.717/1/69
This and the two others show scenes in the rescuing of the maize crop (grown in the area flooded by the dam, after the emptying of the reservoir) before the river washes it away by rising again. Here you see the water rising in a channel and a crowd of boys who are about to load a pile of maize into boats. (Note typical native axe)
SAD.717/1/70
Showing method of road making being tried here. Procedure 1. Plough does furrows on each side. 2. Bulls draw the GUSSABIA towards the road and the man fills it with earth by raising handles so that front edge digs up earth. 3. On arrival at furrow, it is tipped up and the earth distributed evenly over the surface thus making raised road. Gussi [?] is kind of super dustpan
SAD.717/1/71
The new road on which I have been working (poor photo I fear, but shows the trees well)
SAD.717/1/72
Omda Ali Sugr (u as in but, g as in go and a suspicion of a vowel between the g and r), with whom I was on trek lately. He was a great slave owner in the old days. Excellent old chap. Note the piece of his turban hanging down by his left ear - shows he is a Mahdist in a mild way
SAD.717/1/73
Asswan Dam 1928
SAD.717/1/74

SAD.717/1/86
The Rest House at Mazmum where I perched for 12 days 22/11/28-4/12/28, showing the shoulder of the Gebel in the background. Odd effect of light is due to taking photo at midday into the sun with lense shaded (the only way to get light on the N. side)
SAD.717/1/87
