Scope and Contents
39 x 61 mm.neg; print 69 x 96 mm. The common method of carrying baby in the Bamenda division. The child sits astride the mother's back in a sort of hammock of goat skin slung from the shoulders and attached by thongs passing round the waist. The children seem to take to this method naturally and one often sees them helping the mothers and never a word is spoken, each does her 'bit' in getting comfortable.
