Photographer's Note

In 1973 I travelled Overland from London to Nairobi. Shortly after crossing into the Congo - then called Zaire - we came upon this dugout canoe in the process of being cut out of a log. Traditional dugouts were still being used on the rivers in the Congo & it was interesting to see at first hand how this was done. Today it is probably all tin boats! Photo taken on Kodachrome 25 with my trusty Ricoh Singlex. Scanned & digitised.
