Description
Tinted lantern slide showing a crowded Okopedi Beach in Calabar. Rows of wooden boats are arranged along the shoreline, and vendors have set up piles of produce (fruit and vegetables) along the beach to sell. This slide comes from a set on mission, culture and industry in Calabar, southeast Nigeria generated by the Church of Scotland and the United Free Church of Scotland (which was incorporated with the Church of Scotland in 1929.)
