Mystery Photo #7--a real mystery this time
When we were in Robertsport a few weeks ago--(see a previous post)--we were exploring some big old buildings that had been damaged during the war and have not been renovated yet. One of them was the Tubman Center of African Culture, a beautiful building which is still in pretty good condition. It's named for the longest serving president of Liberia, William V. S. Tubman, who was in the highest office for about 27 years (1944 until his death in 1971).
The building was almost empty, except for this small hanging seat like a Gondola chair. We were looking all around trying to figure out where it "belonged" or what it's use was. So... if any of you who know more about Liberia's past than we do, or have spent time in Robertsport before, can help us unravel the mystery of this hanging swing or ferris wheel car, we'd be very, very interested to know! Thanks......
