Leyte Local Draws Water 2
"Filipino Lady drawing water from shallow well - Leyte" From "Darkroom Soldier": "Water From the Well. Near the soldiers' camp, a wooden box formed the head of a shallow fresh water well. To reach the water, Filipinos lowered a can on a bamboo pole, lifted the water up, filled their containers -- or bathed on the spot, as Hill observed -- then set the dipper on a stand for the next user." ("Darkroom Soldier" caption authored by George Venn)
