A copy of this photograph is in the collection of the Royal Museum for Central Africa (Inventory number: SA.5153-12) and their curatorial description (accessed: 5 September 2013) reads:
 
This photograph was shot in 1872, in London, when Stanley was back from his journey to find Livingstone. It is part of a series, emphasizing the idea of so-called exploration and long travels in Africa. Riffle, high leather boots, helmet etc. were classical accessorizing items which may be found in other portraits, illustrating travels of the Victorian era.
 
This photograph is part of an Album kept in the Henry M. Stanley Archives (King Baudouin Foundation Collection held in trust at the RMCA).
