Description

One of a boxed set of stereoscope photographs which was produced for sale to the general public by a profesional firm of photographers, Underwood and Underwood. The Second Boer War (1899-1902) was the first war to be covered comprehensively by both film and still photography. This was the result of improved technology in both photographic equipment and printing techniques; cameras were more portable and magazines started to reproduce half-tone photographs. Naauwpoort, a strategic railway junction in the northern Cape Colony, was the scene of fighting in late 1899 and early 1900 as the British tried to break the siege of Kimberley.
