Freetown, Sierra Leone
A woman walks past 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. It is hard to assess the surviving number of Board Houses in Sierra Leone, some of which were destroyed in the country's devastating 1991-2002 civil war. Picture taken April 27, 2012.
