Photograph of a river in Western Africa



Silver gelatin print by unknown photographer, ca. 1912-1914. Image shows a river in Western Africa (possibly the Niger River). On the far bank can be seen an indigenous man with a long canoe and what appears to be a tent or shelter erected on the beach. Loose photograph from album compiled by William John Roberts ("John"), Liverpool-born merchant for The Lagos Stores Ltd., based in colonial Lagos, Nigeria.
