Title: Africans 1930s and 1940s Photos
Post by: Chuck Thompson on 17 July, 2009, 04:59
My father, Melvyn (Mel) C. Thompson, arrived in Tanganyka late in 1936 to work for a British East African gold mining company.  His job was to prospect for gold.  These are photos he took of the people he hired as porters to support the prospecting operation.
