Dr Senbanjo – 1967

The back of the photo says “Dr (Miss) Alaba Senbanjo welcomed by her parents – on her arrival at Apapa wharf from the UK after qualifying as a doctor”

I really like this photo. Though the physical effects of the civil war was not really felt in Lagos. I’m sure Dr Senbanjo was worried for the family she left behind whilst studying in the UK.

The look of happiness (and maybe relief?) is clear to see.
