Men praying, India, ca. 1920

Tinted lantern slide showing a group of Hindu men bowing to pray. Six men bow in line in front of a man who sits before them. A lota (a copper or brass vessel often used in ritual purification) can be seen before one of the men who bends to pray. The men pray on the sandy bank of a river. This slide comes from a collection created by missionaries from Regions Beyond Missionary Union, an interdenominational Protestant evangelical mission working in northeast India (Bihar and Orissa) and Nepal.
