DeLord Gallery
The DeLord brothers, A. R. P. DeLord and Pereira DeLord, were among the most prolific photographers in Zanzibar history. They worked from the later 1800’s through the early 1900’s in Zanzibar. No one has more preserved work from early east Africa still available today than do the de Lords. Pereira regarded himself as an artist and his works always bore the his name and the phrase “Zanzibar. Photo Artist”.
The DeLords seem to have been everywhere in Zanzibar the early years, all over the town, in the country, at sea, in high buildings and of course they also maintained a studio. There, just off a main street in Stone Town, they produced quality portraiture for all manner of customers, such as this German visitor.
