This photograph, showed two mechanics at work repairing a truck located at the E.I.S., and public health personnel headquarters known as 'Smallpox Zero'. This image was part of a series provided by Dr. Stan Foster, and captured by Pierre Claquin, M.D., B.A.C., who at the time was a member of the World Health Organization's Smallpox Eradication Program. It was part of a series captured by former E.I.S. officer, Stanley O. Foster M.D., M.P.H., and was one of a series entitled 'The Story of One Smallpox Jeep', which depicted the travails faced by the jeep, and its occupants of public health practitioners, as they road through the Bangladesh countryside in an attempt to eradicate smallpox from the country. Modes of transport included walking, country boats, motorboats, launches, trains, all terrain vehicles, buses, and trucks like the one shown here.
