This chapter contains a selection from over 500 photographs taken by my father, Revd Junius Wilfred Schomberg, while he was stationed at St Paul's Mission, Mua. They offer a fascinating pictorial history of the Mission from the early 1920s to the mid-1930s. My father took the photos with a Houghton camera, which he bought in 1911 and which used both film and glass-plate negatives. He developed his own negatives and printed his postcard-size pictures on Mua.
