Palanquin or Filanjana: Digitising and describing a collection of Stereographic glass slides of Madagascar

L Hart


The article deals with the digitization of a collection of stereographic
glass slides, provenance unknown, and the description of the slides using the few clues available. From the handful of slides that are dated it would seem that the date range is circa 1907 to 1912. Subjects include both the French colonial troops as well as local Malagasy inhabitants. The challenges of using correct and helpful terminology are mentioned.
