Cattle amid curved grass windscreens and a thatched cattle byre (luak) to the right. Beyond is probably the Sobat River, a main source of water during the drought. Although the location is unknown, this image may well be of part of Yakwach camp where Evans-Pritchard spent 3 months in 1931 or close by at Kurmayom (just downstream on the Sobat) where he spent about 3 weeks in the same year.
