Description
Black and white photograph showing a scene in the marketplace in Igumale, a town in modern Benue state, Nigeria. A group of men and boys in traditional dress make a circle around two men who stand at its centre. The men wear shorts, and each wears a white feather attached to the top of his head. The caption to this image reads: "Market place at Igumale boy with white feather - a 'brave.'" This photograph was pasted into one of a series of exercise book albums created by Emily Godfrey, Matron of the Ama Achara Methodist Hospital.
