Description

“An Incident of the South African Campaign”. Likely among the first illustrated images in Canada devoted to armed conflict, in this case the Boer War in South Africa.  Canadian troops were sent there and sustained thousands of casualties. This image from a famous painting of the period shows a young vet returning home, surprising his aged mother. Unusual, certainly rare. (Dutch /Africkaans /Dominion /Soldiers) Near mint on linen.
