Photograph of street in Lagos, Nigeria



Silver gelatin print by Holm's Studio, Lagos, ca. 1912-1914. Image shows two European men on horseback (man on left is William John Roberts), being led by two West African men on foot. Handwritten inscription on verso places the photograph in Sierra Leone, but photographer's wet stamp indicates Lagos. Loose page from album compiled by William John Roberts ("John"), Liverpool-born merchant for The Lagos Stores Ltd., based in colonial Lagos, Nigeria.
