    Black and white stereograph slide, T244 from Tour of the World, vol 5 and 6. Text on the back of the slide reads as follows: "Victoria Falls was discovered by David Livingstone in 1855. . .Three islands just above those falls divide the waters before they make the aweful plunge of 343 feet. That Central Fall has a width of 473 yds. On the east is the Rainbow Fall. This one on the west is the Devil's Cataract. The mist issuing from the falls can be seen for miles and gives rise to the native name "Roaring Smoke." The Falls are midway along the course of the Zambesi River, between the borders of Zambia and Zimbabwe. They were named by Livingstone for the British Queen Victoria.
