 Basel Mission Picture Archive
"This is a web site for everyone who is interested in photographs taken on the boundary between European and African and Asian cultures between 1850 and 1950. The photographs you can find here were mostly taken by missionaries... Judging by their photographs many of these men and women were fascinated by the unknown world around them which they were gradually learning to understand, and had great respect for the people with whom they lived and worked." In Africa, the Basel Mission had a presence in Ghana and in Cameroon. [the photo at left shows three Ghanaian women spinning cotton, and was taken in the 1860s!]
