A typical side road leading to villages off the then-main road that connected Menji to Ahenkro in the Banda area. Tall grass lines the narrow track which was primarily used by lorries which transported agricultural products. December, 1982.
Standing on the south bank of the Black Volta River near Bui village, looking east-northeast to the gap in the Banda hills where the Bui Dam was constructed after 2008. The area between Bui village and the river was the site of a 19th-century village, Bui Kataa (old Bui). This area was flooded by the rising waters of Bui Lake as it formed behind Bui Dam after 2012. Bui Village, 25 July, 1982.
