Island Club: Down Memory Lane

No doubt, Island Club is one of the oldest multinational clubs in Nigeria. Even Wikipedia agrees with that.

The early members were elite Nigerians, mostly Lagos based “politicians, lawyers, captains of industry, soldiers and other professionals.” And foreigners who, according to Wikipedia included the British Governor-General of Nigeria, Sir Arthur Richards.

Today, we bring you a memory which dates back to 1950.

Please look closely at the above photo. Who can you identify (laugh).

If you can’t identify them, we will help you!
