From a box of old photographs, most likely taken in Sierra Leone in the 1920s I thought this photo was quite remarkable for the silent narratives that could be woven into it. Plus, what's not to like about a family so inordinately proud of their palm nuts that they want to show them to the camera!

Well, being a vintage clothing fan, I'd go for the outfits everytime - super photo! The poor local man looks rather aprehensive - he can't be a servant due to the lack of clothes, but perhaps a gardener?
