WYNDHAM ROBINSON (1883-1959) ZIMBABWE / RHODESIA'S ANCIENT PAST INTRIGUES THE WORLD. 1928. 39 3/4x24 3/4 inches, 101x63 cm. Hortors Limited, Cape Town. Condition B / B+: replaced upper left corner, slightly into image; repaired tears, creases and restoration in margins and image and along vertical and horizontal folds; repaired pin holes in corners. In 1895, the territory of South Zambezia (currently, Zimbabwe) was renamed Rhodesia after Cecil Rhodes, the British colonial whose South Africa Company governed the area from 1889. Depicted is the conical tower within the "Great Enclosure," a wall that runs around the ancient African ruins of "Great Zimbabwe," a city constructed from the 11th to 15th century. The site is noted not only for being the largest ancient structure south of the Sahara Desert, but also for the skill by which all of the granite rocks were placed together without the use of mortar. Robinson was a London-born cartoonist who moved to Rhodesia to become a farmer after the First World War. This poster also exists with the text: "Rhodesia's Climate Calls."
