54 x 107 mm. Showing a row of boys planting rubber seedlings beneath an awning under the supervision of an European official (possibly H. Batey, overseer of Government plantations). Rubber cultivation (inspired by Sir Henry Hesketh Bell) was not a success in Uganda: the first trees were trapped in 1908, but Hesketh Bell notes in his memoirs that the experiments were allowed to lapse shortly after he left Uganda and little rubber was ever exported on a commercial scale.
