'Britain's soldiers reviewed by Lord Roberts in public square of the Boer's fallen capital, Pretoria', 1900

Stereoscopic photograph, Boer War, 1900.

Lord Roberts' force captured Pretoria, capital of the South African Republic, on 5 June 1900. The Boers had decided not to defend the city and ordered a retreat along the Delagoabay railway line. President Paul Kruger left Pretoria at the same time. Despite the loss of their capital, the Boers refused to surrender and Roberts had to continue the war by capturing the rest of the Transvaal and defeating the mobile Boer commandos.

From a box of 89 stereoscopic cards entitled, 'South African War through the Stereoscope Pt 2 Vol 1', published by Underwood and Underwood and produced by Works and Sun Sculpture Studios, 1901 (c).
