Also included in the International Mission Photography Archive. More than 9,500 children are in C.M.S. Schools in West Africa Mission Stations.

Twin children are shown on the left, one wearing traditional dress and the other wearing a striped dress. They are both holding dolls in their arms. Under the picture of the two says: "Prize winners." and under the picture of the one child says: "The call from darkest Africa." There is also printed information about the mission agency: "Church Missionary Society, Salisbury Square, E.C. "Picture and Fact" Post Cards."
