Description
"Frauen in Guduru beim Kornreinigen, dahinter Bohnen" ("Women in Guduru cleaning grain, behind beans"). Photograph of three women cleaning grain in the front yard.
Handwriting on copy reading: "Frauen reinigen Korn" ("Women clean grain").
Separate note reading: "[H]inten Bohne", "Nachbarinnen helfen ihr beim Dreschen, vorne die ausgedroschen[en] Rispen des Birsinga. Die Pflanze gleicht genau dem Mais, nur dass sie in den Blütenrispen auch die Frucht ansetzt, etwas dicker wie Kohlsamen" ("[B]ehind bean", "Neighbors help her with the threshing, in front the threshed out panicles of the birsinga[?]. The plant resembles exactly corn, but it grows in the risps also the fruit, slightly thicker than cabbage seeds").
