Old Photos - Nigeria

These photos were taken in Nigeria when Julie Smart worked with SSL (Seismograph Service Limited) in Port Harcourt between September 1984 and July 1986. They were mainly scanned in from slides and depict a visit to a field crew, typical delta river scenery, picnicking on the beaches, inland visits, hashing, and scuba diving in the rivers and offshore. (Apologies for not remembering everyone's name but have put them in where possible.)
