My grandfather was a missionary doctor in very rural Nigeria in the 1950s and 1960s. These are original photos that he developed himself that document some of the tropical diseases he operated on; including Yaws and Elephantiasis. He is pictured in one of the photos with the tribal Nigerians. The prints are all silver prints that are on some sort of cardboard; dimensions are around 12×14 inches. Some are a little larger, some are a bit smaller. A few are on raised blocks. You will receive all 8 photos as pictured. I will send with these photos a little history of how they relate to my grandfather. Photos are not in pristine condition. Please look closely at all the photos.
