Title: Uganda Co. Ltd. Part of cotton ginnery
Description: 145 x 98 mm. A view looking along a cotton ginning plant with Ugandans at work at the machines which separate the cotton from the seeds. Cotton was first introduced into Uganda by K. Borup, an industrial missionary, who in 1903 distributed 62 bags of cotton seeds for planting. The Uganda Cotton Company, with Borup as manager, was founded in 1904. By the time of the Uganda Agricultural Exhibition in 1908 cotton output was estimated by the Governor to be worth 50,000 and was the major exhibit. By the time Sir Albert Cook wrote 'Uganda Memories' cotton output was second only to India in the Empire and it maintained this position until recent years.
