Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y30468X

Scope and Contents

A collection of three uncaptioned loose prints measuring approximately 210 x 150 mm. There is no indication with the prints of what they depict and their source is unknown. The pictures illustrate attempts to remove a tree which has fallen across the path of a narrow gauge rail track. From the smallness of the line, it is possible that this is the trolley line on Mombasa Island.
