Pictoral Africana includes various historical artworks depicting mostly South African and Southern African landscapes, animals and people and include prints, original works and images from books. These collected images form part of the Hugh Solomon Collection which was donated to the Library and Information Service in the 1960’s. Hugh Ross Solomon (1876-1956) was a Johannesburg lawyer who inherited the Africana collection of his father, Sir Edward Philip Solomon, and in his own lifetime added much to the collection.
