Description: A.W. BAYLIS (DATES UNKNOWN) THE ROOF OF RHODESIA / INYANGA. 1937.

Condition A.
In 1895, the country of South Zambezia was re-named Rhodesia after Cecil Rhodes, the British colonial whose South Africa Company governed the area from 1889. The country is currently referred to as Zimbabwe. The town of Inyanga is present-day Nyanga in the northeast of the country near the border with Mozambique. The name "Roof of Rhodesia" likely refers to Mt. Nyangani, the tallest mountain in the country which is very close to the town. The area is rich in Stone Age, archaeological remains. Little is known about Baylis, who designed at least four posters relating to tourism in Rhodesia.
