This book is a window into Nairobi's past and a reminder of its present. The transformation we see is uneven - some things and places have evolved unrecognisably, while others remain constant. Nairobi is a place of great change. Rapid development and outward expansion is ever reshaping the landscape. Kenya and the UK have been partners in Nairobi's evolutionary journey throughout. Not just government, but also in terms of trade and investment, technology, security, knowledge, and people. The Kenya-UK partnership will continue the journey down this road to the future, towards achieving the Kenyan Government's Vision 2030 and beyond. 50 years in the future many places shown in this book could be long gone. While a few special old places might remain, our vision for the 2063 edition of this book is an ultra modern Nairobi, a major interchange of the globalised and interconnected world. And a place where we continue to learn from the lessons of the past, as we focus on the promise of the future.
Fantastic photographic memories of a past that many of us never got to see. The comparison photos with the present serve to emphasise how far Nairobi has come.
A great purchase
