Description
"Nach einer Taufe auf einem Aussenplatz von Isoko. Die Getauften, Br. Zeeb u. Schw. Bachmann unter d. Zelt. Dörfer auf den Hügeln." ("After baptism in an outskirt of Isoko. The baptized, Br[other] Zeeb a[nd] Sis[ter] Bachmann under a tent. Villages on the slopes of the hills."). Large group of Africans sitting, behind them, standing under a tent: four Africans dressed in white, Missionary Zeeb, and Sister Bachmann sitting with a baby on her arms. In the background palm trees and hills.
The photo was presumably taken during Bachmann's and Zeeb's joint stay in Isoko 1908-1910. -- Elisabeth Marie Bachmann (1885-?) was a missionary of the Herrnhuter Brüdergemeine together with her husband Emil Karl Bachmann (1875-1940) from 1908-1916. During that time they stayed in Isoko (1908-1910), Rutenganio (1910), Mwaja (1910-1912) and Rungwe (1912-1916). For the following three years they were British prisoners of war. After they were released, they became missionaries of the Berlin Mission. -- Wilhelm Friedrich Zeeb (1866-1933) was a missionary of the Herrnhuter Brüdergemeine in Nyasa, East Africa, from 1898-1911. From 1900-1910 he stayed in Isoko together with his wife Anna Mathilde Zeeb (born 1875 in Surinam, died 1913). After his return to Germany, he married his second wife Gertraud Adolphine Wünsche (1878-1952) in 1914.
