Group of peasant colonists in Suriname, probably the Taminga family, Julius Muller, 1898 - 1902 Canvas Print

The Taminga family (also written as Tammenga or Tamminga) belonged to the first group of peasant colonists who came to Suriname from the Netherlands in 1845. Muller probably photographed them at their house on the Gemeene Landsweg near Paramaribo. Together with his friend Dr.C. Hoekstra, Muller immersed himself in the history of peasant colonization in 1845 on the Saramacca River. He donated three hundred photographs to the Colonial Museum in Haarlem for an itinerant exhibition that was supposed to mean a new recruitment campaign for farmers from the Netherlands.
