CHRISTMAS IN 1920 NAIROBI

There was a lot to do and see for Christmas in Nairobi in 1920 and below is a glimpse of some of the wonders that the colony's capital city.
For the Children there was a magical display of color and wonder with a visit from Santa Claus, all sponsored by Whiteaway, Laidlaw & Co, Ltd., one of Nairobi's large stores.

For the adults, there were opportunities to dance. The Victoria Hotel offered a costume ball on Christmas eve and the Forest Hotel planned a dance on Christmas Day. So enjoy the glimpse in Christmases past and, from myself, Jade del Cameron and all her friends: A very Merry Christmas.
