'Masea and Mwitu, Two of Livingstone's Makololo.' Image from Harry H. Johnston, British Central Africa (London: Methuen & Co, 1897): 87. Courtesy of Internet Archive. This recently rediscovered image is the only known photograph of individuals from the Makololo, a southern African ethnic group, that accompanied Livingstone during his famous African transcontinental expedition (1852-56). Presumably, Masea and Mwitu are the two seated figures. The third individual (standing) is unidentified.
