Note: Auf der Rückseite des Trägerkartons ist eine weitere Photographie aufgeklebt (Afrika: Missionshaus, tanzende Frauen und Männer)
Repro Negativ dazu vorhanden. - Mit Untestützung der Familie Spellenberg haben wir das bebildete Ereignis identifizieren können: Frauen von Bombe/Kamerun tanzen "Born House" für die Geburt von Werner Spellenberg, 1909. (PJ 02.2002).
Note translation: A photograph is pasted to the rear of the mount which was evidently considered for the offical collection and then rejected (a large pencilled diagonal cross has been drawn on it). Its quality is poor, but a group of African women can be seen dancing around a white figure in front of a two-storey mission house. The Spellenberg family also possess this image. Their version has a caption: "Women of Bombe doing a dance of welcome for Werner Spellenberg, 1909". (PJ 02.2002).
