Anuak on Baro riverbank
Looking towards a group of people gathered near a homestead on the riverbank almost certainly of the Baro River from the deck of a barge steamer. Although the exact location is uncertain, Evans-Pritchard mentions that he observed the Baro Anyuak living almost wholly on the southern, Ethiopian bank, only from the deck of a steamer, stopping at villages briefly only twice. He probably traversed it as far as Gambella judging by the landscape of winding channels and plains.
