I would support your idea. The National Records office should be pro active by visiting homes and making copies of some photos they have and keep at the archives. They only kept pictures that weere in the hands of the colonial government.

There no pictures of social life. I rememeber the chewing sticks and tatoos women do on their lips.That was a big occassion in the villages when youg girls beautify themselves and announces the beginning of their coming of age. The wollof and Fulani women definetely looking wonderful, tall and slim.

You see njuks you are digging into to my romance now(laugh)

I never thought about that when i worked there. May be i will call this week and see if that is a good idea they will want to do. I would have voulutered if i were there. Atleast i can pay for a camera if they want to

Infact i want to add something about the postcard. The tree in the background is a silk cotton tree which used to line the see side called Tefes. Now i dont think there are any left due to sea erosion.

This map 1909 map is from Jede. Some of the information on the map cant be seen after the compression of the file the this size but the original size is too large to be published here. The original version can be downloaded here 2.1 MB but will be deleted by the weekend.

Thanks momodou

From the map, it straetched from half die point, through old customs, to colonial hospital to the cemetry. That area is now under water. The time when the grave yard was started, the sea was mmiles away and now the grave yard is 90% in the sea.

You sometimes find human bones on the beach. It is a sorry site. I think they are working to save the rest of the land left.
