Notes on the Geography of Nigeria: Ibadan: Photo 12

world pictures Nigeria: Ibadan

Here's the view from Mapo Hill northwesterly toward the European commercial center. The broad street was also the work of "Taffy" Jones. H.L. Ward Price, the Resident for whom he worked, wrote of Jones that it was "his tact and reputation which enabled him to drive fifty-foot-wide streets straight through the heart of Ibadan, cutting through hundreds of houses, without meeting any opposition, or having to pay unreasonable compensation." This particular street was called King George V Avenue, though it is now simply Mapo Street. (See Ward Price, p. 278.)
