Tribesmen by Aeroplane

This is another one of those pictures I love showing the clash of the new and the old. We see traditional African warriors, but in the background a modern (in 1936) British Imperial Aeroplane. What an amazing site the plane must have been to the tribesmen the first time they saw it.


  1. And I bet they weren't allowed on it. At least, if they have the money, black Africans can ride in a plane today.

  2. As they were all silver back then the plane would have looking like some noisy dragon dropping from the sky to land near them.
