    Hi,i lived in Monrovia from 1970 until 1972.I stayed in a flat in Sinkor Township and there was a Supermarket with Draft Beer,the only one in Liberia.The Owner was a Libanese,i thhink his name was Labib or simmular.I wonder if this is the mentioned Supermaket.Its long time ago.

    This is certainly the Sinkor area, somewhere b/t 9th and 12th streets, I believe. Of late, some time before 1989, the supermarket had gone, and a trade/market in African crafts and artifacts blossomed here.

    I remembered this area as a child. They used to sell African craft there prior to the civil war in 1990. I’m loving these picture. When my children get older someday I’ll be able to show it to them.
