This photograph of two white boys in their school uniforms walking to or from school in Salisbury, Southern Rhodesia (now Harare, Zimbabwe), underscores the racial segregation Webb described in his travel journal. In colonial Southern Rhodesia, white and Black students had unequal educational opportunities. Webb framed these sharply dressed boys within a busy streetscape, highlighting a Shepherd Lottery Tickets sign overhead, the cars at the parking meters to the right, and the Standard Bank on Manica Street in the background.
