Photographs taken by unknown photographers in Nigeria and found in an album signed on the front inside cover, "W.H. Himbury, Grosvenor Club, Piccadilly 10." Funeral pictures of important African chiefs are prominent within the album and include burial pictures of the family members of the deceased as well as of the belongings of the deceased. Images include views of Lagos and Abeokuta. African peoples include the Anang Ibibio, Kalabari and Efik. Images of individuals include British colonial officials and chiefs of the Niger Delta. Prominent among the British officials is Sir Claude Maxwell Macdonald (1852-1915), Governor of the Oil River Protectorate, which, after 1896, was known as the Niger River Protectorate.
