Those good old days of Lagos; the city of wealth and beauty.

For those who were born in the 70s and early 80s, this throwback will make you reminisce on what Lasgidi used to be. The nostalgic feeling you get as you think of these places were excellence beamed from, just before Nigeria started becoming very crowded in the 90s and 2000s; is actually a thing of pride to remember. These vintage pictures are truly worth seeing. Check out the view of Lagos (in pictures) before 1960.
