A view from the deck of a river boat (a paddle-steamer?), a rope line of the boat seen hanging down on the right of the image, across the calm water of a lagoon in western Nuerland, probably near the mouth of the Sobat, since other images from this film relate to the river. Just visible are three men sitting in a dug-out canoe paddling near the far bank.
