Made on a 10-day train journey throughout Sudan, where Webb traveled from Gezira to Port Sudan by way of Kassala, this diptych shows a rail station in the rural countryside. As a part of his U.N. assignment, Webb actively sought out scenes that emphasized networks of trade and transport across the newly independent nation.
