Full image caption

An etching of The City of Loango. The African kingdom of Loango lay in what is now the Republic of Congo, and thrived between the 15th–19th centuries. Like many African city-states, Loango was a centre of sophisticated culture and trade. By the 19th century its culture had been largely destroyed by European intervention and the slave trade.
