Nairobi Then and Now

Just how much has Nairobi changed over the past century? Here's how much.

Since its establishment as a refreshing stop during the construction of the 'Lunatic Express', Nairobi has grown from a tent village with just a few hundreds of people to a concrete forest that is home to millions today.

In wanting to shot just how much has changed, we researched at the National Archives, Media House Libraries, Museums and the internet for old images of the Nairobi we hear about in stories and set out to reconstruct these in the Nairobi we are all familiar with.

These are initial images from the ongoing project. More will follow in a few weeks.
