Description
“The Owens.” “ Another day Tarr & I walked over to Archdeacon Owen’s at Butere.” Group portrait of the Owens and their three sons. Walter Edwin Owen (1878-1945) was Archdeacon of Kavirondo, head of Church Missionary Society (CMS) work in Western Kenya. Lucy Olive Walton was his second wife and they married in 1911. ❧ The image is from an album chronicling the war time experiences of Archibald Clive Irvine (1893-1974) in German East Africa and Portuguese East Africa with the Royal Army Medical Corps. During this time he would meet Dr John W Arthur which in turn would lead to his missionary work at Chogoria in Kenya.
