Happy Independence Day Sierra Leone!!!
First of all I'll like to start off by wishing my fellow Sierra Leoneans a HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY, we are 51 today...woop woop!!!
Its so wierd how on days like this we come to appreciate and truly realize how much we love our country.
Sierra Leone has come a long way since independence and to say the journey to where we are today has been eventful would be a major understatement. In the spirit of independence we decided to show you some of our favorite vintage pics from my Grandma's album(some of these pics are over 50 years old). I think they capture the spirit of Sierra Leone perfectly; as not only do they showcase our culture, they shed light on the fashion and beauty of that era.
