This photograph was taken by Dr. Simon Ottenberg while on his way to conduct field research at Afikpo village-group, southeastern Nigeria, from September 1959 to December 1960.

Original caption reads, "Scenes at the Obrubra ferry at the Cross River north of Afikpo Village Group. Looking north up the river from the eastern side. It is the dry season. The sandbanks disappear during the rainy period and the river is high." [Ottenberg field research notes, September 1959-December 1960, Part I].
