Date:

Scope and Contents:
Lake Bosumtwi is situated in south-central Ghana, 17 miles (27 km) southeast of Kumasi. The only true inland lake in the country, it has no surface outlet and was formed in a meteorite impact crater. With an area of 19 square miles (49 square km) and a depth of 230-240 feet (70-73 metres), the lake is fed by small streams that tumble down the crater's steep sides (500-1,400 feet [150-425 metres] above water level). Development of tourist facilities on the lakeshore in 1976 led to the resettlement of the residents of Abonu. ["Lake Bosumtwi." Encyclopædia Britannica. 2009. Encyclopædia Britannica Online. 11 May. 2009]. This photograph was taken when Eliot Elisofon was on assignment for Life magazine and traveled to Africa from August 18, 1959 to December 20, 1959.
