December 3, 1937. Victoria Falls, Rhodesia: The view is toward the north and shows the lower face of the falls in almost their full mile-long extent. Above the brink the river flow is gentle, and it is possible to approach the islands by canoe. In the chasm the waters flow into the deep gorge over which the railroad bridge has been built, passing first to the left, then doubling back to the right. 4200 feet. 12:00.
