About This Image
Standing in front of a thatched-roof dwelling, four women, a young boy, and four children pose for their portrait. More than likely taken as a token of exotica for album collections back home, or for ethnographic studies. Both Skeen and Scowen were noted for their descriptive subjects that showed different levels of society in India and Indochina.
