This image was captured between January and February, 1975, and depicts a scene 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 number of villagers were gathering water from a well, and placing the water in whatever canisters they had available. The large tree branch spanning the well’s opening, was used as a makeshift fulcrum, whereupon, a rope and bucket was slung over the branch, and the water-filled bucket could then be hoisted up the well shaft without hitting its sides.
