Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3011U/8

Scope and Contents

Showing the village hall under construction. The typewritten caption on the reverse reads 'The most ambitious building project undertaken by any village was that at Ngwo Uno where the people undertook to build a large village hall. It could not be completed owing to the lack of roofing materials, so a room in one corner was roofed and used as a Sub-Dispensary'. The pencilled annotation differs slightly and has the additional phrase 'in Udi Division' appearing after the words 'by any village' in the first sentence.
