Abstract:Following a brief exposť on the origin of Walvis Bay (South West Africa, now Namibia) in the 18th century and its subsequent development, this paper presents 36 pictures and 10 postcards of Walvis Bay from the photo album of Judge Clemens Gutsche, who was the Supreme Judge of the High Court in Windhoek between 1920 and 1930. As a member of the Cape Garrison Artillery, he had visited Walvis Bay briefly in 1900 in the rank of sub-lieutenant. Gutsche's pictures and postcards date from this period and are reproduced and annotated in the paper. Bibliogr., ref., sum. in English and German. [ASC Leiden abstract]
