Reading Major Powell-Cotton's excellent book "In Unknown Africa" 1904, I attach an extract which is pertinent to this discussion, as it illustrates the keen awareness the Sudanese had for selling souvenirs to Europeans... The Major's visit to Khartoum and Omdurman was in 1903 on his way back to Britain, I believe.
