Description
"The Girls in School." Girls, a number of whom are daughters of chiefs, at lessons in the girls' boarding school at Segbwema.
From a set of lantern slides entitled "Daybreak in Mendiland" compiled by Frank Deaville Walker (1878-1945), editor of the Methodist Missionary Society magazines Foreign Field and its successor, Kingdom Overseas. Many of the photographs Walker used were his own, taken on visits to the MMS mission fields between 1920 and 1937. Mendiland is in the south west of Sierra Leone, the home of Mende-speaking people.
