Old wooden planks cover the facade of a traditional colonial-era Board House dating back about a century in the Murray Town neighbourhood of Sierra Leone's capital Freetown April 28, 2012. The surviving Board Houses are thought to be around 100 years old. In 1940 a British colonial ordinance forbade the construction of thatched dwellings as the original Board Houses were called due to fire hazard. By that stage though the style was already in decline, as stone and later concrete became more fashionable. Picture taken April 28, 2012.
