Scope and Contents:
This photograph was taken by Dr. Simon Ottenberg while conducting field research in northern Sierra Leone within Bafodea Town, the capital of Wara Wara Bafodea Chiefdom, from February, 16, 1988 through March 04, 1988.
Original title reads, "My wife Carol and Ansumana, the caretaker of the Methodist Wesleyan Mission house and property on top of Mission Hill, overlooking Bafodea Town, and another man. It was not used during my 1978-1980 trip or at this time, but had been for a while in between. An African missionary was staying there but was away. Bafodea Town represented the northern end of this mission at the time. The mission did not have enough people to staff it much of the time, but always had a Limba pastor for the church in town. Mission hill was the site of the first known Bafodea Town." [Ottenberg field research notes, Limba Slides and Photographs, February 1988-March 1988].
