Cathedral Church of Christ


Founded in 1867, this is one of the most picturesque church buildings in Lagos. Located on the Marina, Lagos Island, it packs some of the best history of Nigeria's colonial days in its pews. One of its members was Herbert Macaulay, the founder of Nigeria's first political party.

Do they still sell second hand books and magazines outside, across the road?

@ Sharon
Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see you more often.

@Goy
You sure do know Lagos. The second hand books market is still alive and kicking. I've done my own bit of shopping there in the past and still do when I find an interesting title now and again.
