When Nelson Mandela Visited Alexandra Park

When Nelson Mandela Visited Alexandra Park

In 1990, shortly after his release from prison, Nelson Mandela came to our neighbourhood to visit the house where Oliver Tambo lived in exile.

It was not his first visit - back in 1962 Mandela had stayed in the house whilst on an underground visit as a guest of ANC leader Oliver Tambo.

Photographer Vassa Nicolaou who captured these images said: "I took these pictures in Muswell Hill N10 in April 1990. On my way to mum and dads I came across a gathering of people, black limousines, roadblocks, police...I hung around for a while and Nelson Mandela and Winnie arrived. Great stuff!
ALWAYS have a camera with you.
