Tinted lantern slide showing Reverend Alexander and Mrs Banks in a group portrait with an Indian family, possibly native evangelists working for Regions Beyond Missionary Union. The smartly dressed group sit on wicker chairs in front of brick arches which are surrounded by flowers. Reverend Banks was one of the first missionaries for Regions Beyond Missionary Union to arrive in India, coming first to Dinapur in 1899. This slide comes from a collection created by missionaries from Regions Beyond Missionary Union, an interdenominational Protestant evangelical mission working in northeast India (Bihar and Orissa) and Nepal.
