A palaver of chiefs, Accra, Gold Coast [i.e. Ghana], 1924
Scope and Contents
The caption on the reverse reads: 'A Palaver of Chiefs, Accra, Gold Coast. The scene depicts a meeting of chiefs under one of the great ficus trees in the courtyard of Christiansborg Castle, the official residence of the Governors of the Gold Coast. These durbars are a riot of colour owing to the great state umbrellas carried over the heads of the local potentates and the brilliant clothes worn by all in attendance'.
