Peter also created a database of names of Europeans who lived in East Africa prior to 1939.
Christine Nicholls has done stalwart work to help get this on a website for researchers to access. It is still in the early stages, and the photographs have not yet been added, but I am most grateful to Christine for all she has done to make this happen.
Since Peter Ayre passed away in June 2018, and I have taken over and I am slowly learning my way round his stock system, and am relying on the descriptions he had made for the books he held in stock. I am more than happy to attempt to provide more detail if you require it, or send photos on request. I would also be happy for you to pass it on to anyone you feel may be interested.
I will have new lists coming out soon, please sign up to receive notification of their coming on line.
My first selection of books consists of in interesting selection of books printed prior to 1900. Age has not been kind to some, so do please read the descriptions carefully.
If you are interested in any of them, please note the reference number especially if more than one is listed.
