EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a momentous occasion in Nigerian history as Queen Elizabeth II and The Duke of Edinburgh embarked on their tour of Nigeria in 1956. In this enchanting scene, Nigerian women adorned in vibrant traditional costumes and feathered headdresses take center stage at Enugu Stadium. With grace and elegance, they perform the Igbakwu dance, showcasing the rich cultural heritage of Orlu, Owerri province. The atmosphere is electric as these talented dancers captivate both the royal guests and the audience with their rhythmic movements. Their synchronized steps reflect years of tradition passed down through generations, symbolizing unity and celebration within their community. Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip are visibly enthralled by this mesmerizing display of Nigerian culture. This visit to West Africa not only strengthens diplomatic ties but also serves as a platform for cultural exchange between nations. Freddie Reed and Arthur Sidey have masterfully captured this significant moment on film, immortalizing it for future generations to appreciate. This print transports us back to a time when tradition took center stage amidst an era marked by change and progress. As we gaze upon this image from Memory Lane Prints, we are reminded of the power that art has to transcend time, bridging gaps between cultures while preserving cherished traditions.
