Life in 1930’s Kenya - on a fashion photography blog
I came across these fascinating pictures on a fashion photography blog. Not fashion photography at all, but a record of life in 1930’s Kenya taken by the great-great uncle of Oliver Prout the fashion photographer behind the UK based Fashion Photography blog.
These kinds of scenes have largely disappeared, except in the remotest areas - indeed even when I was actively traveling and studying in the region relatively recently, Western influences in dress and transport and of course education, have led to major changes in rural life.
Towns and cities have of course changed even more.
