Colonial Office images of Africa

From the National Archives at Kew:

Today we are excited to announce the launch of Africa Through A Lens, a collection of thousands of Colonial Office images of Africa. The images are as rich and varied as the continent itself, charting more than 100 years of African history from the 1860s through to the 1960s.

We want your help to add to our knowledge by identifying the people, places and events captured on film. You can browse the collection, add comments, and attach your own pictures to show how places have changed over time.

View the collection now and share your knowledge of this fascinating continent.

P.S. Tell us what you think of The National Archives’ website by taking our online survey.
