Zimbabwe (Rhodesia) - Coach crossing Umtali river
Black and white lantern Slide of Coach crossing Umtali river - British South Africa. Part of Box 288, British South Africa. Boswell Collection. Slide number 15 Coach crossing Umtali river - Mutare, formally Umtali, is the fourth largest city in Zimbabwe and is also the capital of the Manicaland Province. Mutare was founded as a fort in 1897 when gold was discovered in the Penhalonga Valley. This is the same area where the Mutare River flows and where gold panning began. The name Mutare means piece of metal and it is believed that this name refers to the Mutare River where gold was first found. However, Mutare was only renamed from Umtali to Mutare in 1982... Date: circa 1890s
