EAST AFRICA OVER FIFTY  YEARS AGO - mccrow.org.uk  Contact me:  malcolm@mccrow.org.uk

While the main aim of this site is still to show Kenya and Uganda as they were over 50 years ago, and Tayside over the last 20 years, if you are considering visiting, or have already visited any of the places listed below, you might find the following pages of interest:  they are collections of photographs accumulated during visits over the past few years.  The photographs were often taken as the opportunity arose and often from a moving vehicle.
