Glad you enjoyed them Colin.
Few more for the evening...
First the palace at Dikwa. Built by the infamous Rabeh Ibn Fade-Allah.
Second another view of the palace.
Third some Tuaregs at Zinder also circa 1916. More about that city in a sec.
Fourth, the main gate at Zinder. A rather interesting city famed for local weapons production, swords, spears and even cannon! Photo from 1916.
Fifth some more Dikwa cavalry doing a mock charge. This should also be an early 1900s photo.
Sixth another view of Sanda Mandara on his horse - he appears quite young so I'm assuming the image was shot sometime between 1917 when he took the throne and maybe 1920?
