Description
Portrait of two Kikuyu goat herders both in traditional dress and holding long switches, some goats graze behind them and children watch on. Goats were a major livestock amongst the Kikuyu. ❧ Tumutumu was established in 1908 by Rev. Henry Scott and Dr. John Arthur and is situated in the Central Highlands of Kenya, 130km north of Nairobi. The mission was set up as a clinic but soon expanded to include a school and church serving the Kikuyu population indigenous to the region. Arthur Ruffelle Barlow (1888-1965), the nephew of David Clement Ruffelle Scott (1853-1907) and co-editor of the Kikuyu – English Dictionary, was the first resident missionary at Tumutumu. ❧ This image belongs to an album of photographs collected by Dr. Stevenson and includes images from India, China and Africa.
