"Der Felsen, der Kinder abwirft" ("The rock which throws children down"). Landscape.
The title might refer to the rock as a site of child abandonment. For this, cf. photos no. 785 and 786, album no. 3. -- Wilhelm Guth (1888-1980), from Zeiskam in the Rhineland Palatinate, studied commerce before joining the Leipzig Mission as a pastor. He served in Gonja (southern Pare) from 1913 to 1917 and from 1927 to 1938. He left a large number of photographs, mostly taken by himself but including some by members of his family or fellow missionaries.
