Africa Through a Lens

The National Archives UK uploaded a new collection to their Flickr photostream, entitled Africa Through a Lens. This collection is comprised of 26 sets, and includes nearly 5,000 images. Happily, this collection will increase in size!

These images of Africa are from collections of Britain’s Colonial Office. This one is from the “Malawi” set:
