I love this blog and since I love photography it gets a thumps up from me. The happy lagosians blog features lagos, its people and projects going on in the city. But I especially love the vintage photography about lagos life in the 50s and 60s. For more click on the link above.

Wow, how neat is this! That little girl with the queen is adorable!

I should scan some pics from one of my mom's photo albums because one thing Nigerian women have always been is STYLISH!
