Zaria house 2

Ruth in garden, Zaria, NIgeria, ca 1957. Looking distinctly dry season!


slide scans 1950s and 1960s


Vintage family slides from 1950s & early 60s NIgeria (scanned). Jean and David were in Nigeria for over 10 years, David working in the then colonial service and education. For some of that timeJean worked part-time in a number of secretarial roles and teaching.


The family lived variously in Kano, Maru, Zaria and Kuru, near Jos (Plateau Province).


The slides uploaded are just a selection of the family collection, not intended to be artistic or significant at the time, but a personal 'diary'. David was the principal photographer.
