Description
Black and white lantern slide of a group of Congolese Christians in a posed group photograph - men, women and children. The group is smartly dressed and poses outside a brick and thatched dwelling in Ekombe, north Congo in the modern Equateur province. 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.
