Notes on the Geography of Nigeria: Oshogbo: Photo 8

world pictures Nigeria: Oshogbo

European civilization came, too, first with establishment of British rule in the 1890s and in 1905 with a narrow-gauge railroad from Lagos. The missionaries liked the convenience of the railroad but complained that the trains were "followed by the advent of representatives of the principal Lagos trading firms, whose influence has not been altogether on the side of righteousness." Any doubts about what they mean? They're thinking about rum and gin but don't want to even speak those words.

See Proceedings of the Church Missionary Society, 1907-1908, p. 30.
