Notes on My Time in Northern Nigeria

Census of Northern Nigeria in Sokoto Province

This photo was taken in August 1952. It shows the enumerator writing on the census form the results of questioning the householder - as worked out with finger in the and on the floor. Over 20,000 of these formes were used in Sokoto Province. Below, a householder looks a bit puzzled at the questions being asked of him (most of them were at some point).
