Scope and Contents
Showing Powell standing beside a message drum. The caption below the photograph continues: 'This drum is carved out of one peice [sic] of wood; it has a long narrow opening at the top, and the inside is quite hollow. All the country round here is low lying swampy forest and the climate consequently hot and sticky. I usually wore a sarong (Kikoi) which proved a comfortable and cool dress for walking'.
