Tuku Tuku village new compound 1958

Tukurtukur (or Tuka Tuka) rock (& village) - a local landmark on Government college grounds of 140 acres.


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.
