The 2nd Anglo Boer War – President Paul Kruger

The 2nd Anglo Boer War – President Paul Kruger’s famous stoep in front of his house in Pretoria – here he was often seen reminiscing or receiving guests and greeting passers by. Ironically the two Lions where gifts from one of his nemesis – the mining magnate – Barney Bernato. This photo was taken by the British forces on occupation of the city.
