Elephants and their mahouts at Alawatugoda, Ceylon


Title:
Elephants and their mahouts at Alawatugoda, Ceylon
Description:
The Sawyer family left Australia in January 1924, returning to New York via Ceylon, India, Egypt, and Europe. Dr. Sawyer, as the Rockefeller Foundation's assistant regional director for the East, spent the first part of the journey visiting RF hookworm control sites (and potential sites) in Ceylon and India, but combined this with sightseeing. The caption on the back of the photograph reads, "January 30, 1924. Elephants and their mahouts at Alawatugoda between Ihalate[?] and Kandy."
