|Extent and Medium
|Content and context|
99 x 73 mm. Showing the steam engine and carriages leaving Port Bell for Kampala. This 'monorail' was ordered (at a cost of about £3000) by Sir Henry Hesketh Bell and was intended for use until proper road and rail facilities could be established. The monorail was first tested on April 22 1908 and this photograph may well have been taken on its trial run.
Refer to Y3045C/116 and Hesketh Bell Collection Y3011C/84 for another view of Port Bell monorail. Dated 1909 in Y3011D/71.
