This Nigerian Twitter User Documented Amazing Photos of Colonial Buildings And We Are Stunned

Nigerian Twitter user @Kelechinaba set out to document pictures of houses built during the colonial era, and the results are simply amazing. 

Colonial buildings have this classic aura, that transports you back in time and gives you a glimpse of what life was back then. It’s a shame that most of these buildings have not been well preserved, but thanks to people like Kelechi, we get to see what some of these buildings look like. See the amazing photos below.
