A woman stands outside a traditional colonial-era Board House, now covered in corrugated metal, dating back about a century on the main road through the Congo Town neighbourhood of Sierra Leone's capital Freetown April 27, 2012. Former American slaves and free blacks sought refuge with the British during the American Revolutionary War. After the British defeat they were evacuated to Nova Scotia in Eastern Canada, and in 1792 a contingent came to Sierra Leone and began building Board Houses, known as 'bode ose' in the krio vernacular. Picture taken April 27, 2012. REUTERS/Finbarr O'Reilly (SIERRA LEONE - Tags: SOCIETY) ATTENTION EDITORS - PICTURE 04 OF 29 OF PACKAGE 'FREETOWN - FADING ARCHITECTURE'
