Scope and Contents
Showing a woman spinning cotton in front of a mud and thatch hut in Anchau. The typewritten caption on the reverse reads 'The hub of the resettlement scheme is the town of Anchau. In 1939 the foul and congested slums of the town were cleaned up. Three wide roads were driven through the town and the 600 people thus dispossessed were moved to a new site - Takalafiy, three-quarters of a mile away. The picture shows a woman of Anchau slums before the town was cleaned up'.
