I recently showed a friend who has had a holiday home in Lagos for many years, the attached black and white photos I took when visiting Lagos in the summer of 1974 after my finals. A friend and I had driven down from London in a grey mini van!
The photos are scans from the original negatives and slide.
Given the recent changes to your local railway station, they may be of interest to you/your readers given the very different atmosphere of the station now: you can even see a local freight facility in the background.
Unfortunately I only took the Lagos photos in black and white, but did take a colour photo up at Figueira da Foz at the same time so have also included a copy of that as it illustrates the vintage nature of Portugese trains at the time.
