A group portrait of eight mostly young children wearing western clothing, standing next to the American Presbytarian Mission building at nasir. In the background is a water tower with a raised tank for piped water supplies. The children are identified as eight motherless children being cared for by Blanche Soule at the mission which Evans-Pritchard visited in 1931 and again in 1935, when he was presumably given the photograph.
