dc.description The Imperial Institute was founded in 1887 'as a monument to the emerging imperial sentiment'. It acted partly as an educational instrument, with extensive gallery spaces promoting the Commonwealth, but was also an important research base for the Empire, exploring the potential for industrial commercial operations in the Dominions and Colonies. This collection of photographs was primarily used for teaching purposes by the staff of the Imperial Institute, and were mainly taken by amateur photographers during the 1920s-1930s. The photographs cover an extensive range of subjects and activities from all parts of the Empire, with an emphasis on the more exotic and undeveloped regions, especially India and Africa. en_US
