Today marks the 116 th anniversary of the Proclamation of the Sabi Game Reserve Proclaimed by President SJP Kruger on 26 March 1898.

Here below is a copy of the actual Proclamation no R8748/95 signed by President Kruger and the Secretary of State Dr WJ Leyds.

As well as a copy of the Government gazette no 900 dated 13 April 1898 of the Transvaalsche Republic publishing proclamation no 8748/95.

Interesting ... but is there a way to make these two images large enough for them to be readable -- or can they be linked to larger images?
