Description
"Government Police Station Kikuyu." Exterior view of several large tents with an official and two askaris standing on the left. This is probably accommodation and offices set up during a visit by government officials, notably Mr John Ainsworth (1864-1946) the colonial administrator, and askari troops. The Church of Scotland took on responsibility for the Kikuyu mission in 1901 and sent out Dr David C R Scott, to head the mission, and Dr Uffman as the medical missionary. This image is from a collection of photographs which possibly belonged to Dr Karl Uffman, son of Dr Henry Uffman of the Leprosy Asylum in Purulia, West Bengal. He studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh and joined the Kikuyu mission in Kenya, from 1901 to 1905.
