"Domasi and District. Two weddings." Group portrait of newly-wed couples standing at the entrance to a church. The Domasi Mission was founded in 1884 by Rev. Alexander Hetherwick (1860-1939). It is one of a number of important missions, extending from Blantyre, in Southern Malawi and takes its name from the largest river that flows into Lake Shirwa [Chilwa] on the western shore. It is situated north of Blantyre near Mount Zomba. Rev. Hetherwick was an accomplished linguist and translated the New Testament in to the Yao language and wrote manuals on the Yao and Nyanja languages.
