"Indians in canoe on Pomeroon river."
One of a set of lantern slides entitled "The Land of the Water Lily (British Guiana)" compiled by F. 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. Guiana [Guyana] became a British possession in 1802. Methodist missionary activity in what was then known as Demerara dates from the early nineteenth century.
Lantern slides, 8 x 8 cm.
