EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the year 1912, capturing a moment in time on the waters of New Calabar, Southern Nigeria. The image showcases Tom West Indias canoe, a remarkable mode of travel that was essential for transportation in this region during that era. In this snapshot, we see the canoe gracefully gliding through the river as it carries its passengers across the water. Standing tall and proud against the backdrop of Africa's stunning geography, this scene represents both the beauty and functionality of African water transport. The individuals aboard the canoe reflect a diverse range of ethnicities and races, highlighting Nigeria's rich cultural tapestry. As they embark on their journey, these travelers symbolize unity amidst diversity - united by their shared goal of reaching their destination. The monochrome aesthetic adds an air of nostalgia to this century-old photograph while emphasizing its historical significance. It serves as a window into a different time when canoes were not only means of transportation but also vessels connecting people from various backgrounds. Preserved by The Living Races of Mankind publication in 1912, this print offers us a glimpse into West African life at that period. It stands as a testament to our collective heritage and reminds us how far we have come in terms of advancements in transportation technology.
