This image was captured between January and February, 1975, and depicts a scene in the village of Pakri, located in the district of West Champaran, in the Indian State of Bihar. It was taken by a Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Bureau of State Services staff member during one of the smallpox immunization-related trips to that region of the world. In this particular scene, a Pakri villager was standing atop a well grasping a rope suspended from a long, tapered, wooden overhead rod. The rope was attached to a large bucket, and it was with this contraption that well water was extracted from deep underground.
