Summary expansion
The view in the panorama is looking inland across the harbor to the buildings of the town beyond. Large and small sailing ships are moored along the coast. From a large rowboat, the two rowers and their six passengers--native men in African robes and headdresses--are turned to watch the photographer. "Stone Town is the old part of Zanzibar City, the main city of Zanzibar. In 1890, under the Helgoland-Zanzibar Treaty, Zanzibar itself became a British protectorate. In 1896, rebellion by the Zanzibari Omanis against the British rule led to the Anglo-Zanzibar War, remembered as the shortest war in history: the Sultan surrendered after 45 minutes of naval bombardment of Stone Town by the Royal Navy. During the period of British protection, Stone Town remained a relatively important trading center, although the British gave privileges to Mombasa and Dar es Salaam as their trading stations in East Africa"--Wikipedia
