Notes on the Geography of Nigeria: Lagos: Photo 59

world pictures Nigeria: Lagos

The Bristol's hulk sits on a corner of the Central Lagos Slum Clearance Project, which was begun in 1955. Some 30,000 people were evicted in this clearance scheme, but the result, apart from this hotel, was an open space of 42 acres converted in the view of one observer to "a shopping slum."

See Donald W. Griffin's "Urban Development in Africa: the Case of Lagos," in The California Geographer, 1967.
