I received this post card this morning, it’s a picture of the old Eastern House of Assembly in Enugu. c.1960
The Eastern House of Assembly (created by the Richards Constitution in 1946) served as a moderator between the local native authorities and the legislative council in Lagos.
Enugu became a municipality in 1956 and Umaru Altine became its first Mayor.
In 1960 Enugu became the capital of the eastern region but as a result of the 1966 coup the House of Assembly was dissolved.

So pleased to find some images of the House of Assembly buildings in Enugu. My father, an Architect, designed them and I still have a photo of his watercolour renderings of his design. Thrilled to find your postcard image
Amazing!! I’d love to have a look at the photo you have.
