*eBay description:
We have recently acquired a large number of items at an estate sale. This individual was a country doctor and a son of a missionary in the Belgian Congo. He lived in the Congo with his parents until he came to the states to attend college. Some of these photos are of many of the African natives his father know from the 1920-1960’s. There are also photos of other missionaries and many of his families travel and back in the states. These photos have been in storage for a lifetime. There are various sizes and conditions. Please email with questions.
