Description
“The Carriers Depot, DSM. Porters seated.” Interior view of a large warehouse with groups of indigenous men sitting and standing around. The photographer, Lt. Irvine, was stationed with the carrier hospital in German East Africa. ❧ 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.
