At the edge of Abidjan's Parc du Banco is a small river that serves as a wash-house, where the fanicos (laundry men) work, after collecting the laundry from the whole of the city.

Abidjan was a small village until it became a railway terminus in 1904, and it grew still more after the French enlarged its facilities in the 1920s. Abidjan became the capital of France’s Ivory Coast colony in 1934 and the capital of the independent nation of Côte d'Ivoire when it became independent in 1960.
