Tinted lantern slide showing a group of state officials in the Congo Free State sitting on the porch of a brick building with thatched roof. Congo Balolo Mission missionaries worked in the Congo Free state with the consent of its state officials and its landowners, Leopold II of Belgium and the Belgian state after Leopold was forced to cede the land in 1908. This slide comes from a collection generated by missionaries working for the Congo Balolo Mission, a mission begun in 1889 under the supervision of the East London Training Institute for Home and Foreign Missions that developed into the interdenominational evangelical mission Regions Beyond Missionary Union after 1900.
