Inscription on the back: "Kribi: Frauen Kassada bereitend (Maniok)" [Kribi: women preparing cassava (manioc)].

From the general medical report of Georg Ipscher for the years 1900/1901: "In the coastal villages, the rations for the coloured members of the protection forces consist of rice, salted meat and bread in sufficient quantities. [...] Further inland, the villages have to procure their own food, which is not a problem given the abundance of pisang, sorghum, yam roots, cassava, manioc peanuts and the occasional kill. The Europeans have to provide for their own food. At the internal stations [...] a variety of European vegetables including cucumbers, cabbage, beans, radishes, celery and even potatoes are grown; there is also plenty of fresh meat — African cattle (a small breed), humped cattle (a large breed with a hump of fat above the shoulders), sheep, goats, pigs, ducks, chickens. [...] Kribi is the worst off in this regard. Here, fresh meat is only available very occasionally. European vegetables do not grow very well. Plenty of fresh fish and crustaceans, however, provide some variety."
