Reliving The Past

Living in Tanzania for twenty years now and witnessing the wind of change sweeping through this country and East Africa, I found it extremely stimulating and interesting to go slowly through a set of vintage photos recently published by the National Archives of the United Kingdom. What a marvelous piece of photo evidence of the yesteryear...of the past that is on side long gone and on the other side still present and alive in people (some of them) I personally know. This is the link to the website with those photos. Tanzanian album - which is the fifth largest in the whole archives of photos from colonial era Africa -  is here. A sheer pleasure to relive the past!
