"Wäsche in Isoko. Schw. Bachmann" (Laundry in Isoko. S[ister] Bachmann"). In the foreground Sister Bachmann is standing looking down on a piece of cloth in her hands. In front of her are three Africans: the one on the left is standing holding a bucket and a dish towel, the one in the middle is kneeling on the ground with a washtub in front of her washing clothes on a washboard, the one on the right is squatting with a sprinkling can in front of her. A man with a hoe stands next to this group at the edge of a streamlet towards his right. On the left side of the picture is part of a thatched house canopy. Mountains on the horizon.; The picture was probably taken during Sister Bachmann's stay in Nyasa from 1908-1916. -- Elisabeth Marie Bachmann (1885-?) was a missionary of the Herrnhuter Brüdergemeine together with her husband Emil Karl Bachmann (1875-1940) from 1908-1916. During that time they stayed in Isoko (1908-1910), Rutenganio (1910), Mwaja (1910-1912) and Rungwe (1912-1916). For the following three years they were British prisoners of war.
