This photograph was taken by Dr. Simon Ottenberg while conducting field research at Afikpo village-group, southeastern Nigeria, from September 1959 to December 1960.
Original title reads, "New stores being built at Eke market, Afikpo Village-Group. This is the main Afikpo market, meeting every four days. The closest building contains a hotel, a bar, and a store, all owned by Ogbonia Akpo of Amamgballa Village nearby." [Ottenberg field research notes, September 1959-December 1960, Part II].
