We are delighted to represent images from the fascinating collection of Dr N.P. Jewell documenting his time as a doctor in east Africa in the early part of the 20th century. The photographs are featured in a recently-published book On Call in Africa, in War and Peace, 1910-1932, a remarkable account based on Dr Jewell's official diaries and personal memoirs.
