Notes on the Geography of Nigeria: Ibadan: Photo 4

world pictures Nigeria: Ibadan




Makes a mess. Antiquarian Footnote: A longtime resident of Ibadan left this description of the road as it existed in the 1930s. Lamenting the fact the the roads of that day were not properly surveyed but instead followed ancient paths, he wrote "there is the example of the busiest road in the whole Protectorate, leading from Ibadan into Lagos, which allows only just enough room for two vehicles to pass over most of the distance and presents a sharp corner every few hundreds of yards across a flat landscape.... No doubt they will continue to do so for another generation." Henry Lewis Ward Price, Dark Subjects, 1939, p. 61-2.
