Dar es Salaam

I love the roof line on this post office in Dar es Salaam (“Haven of Peace”), the largest city in Tanzania, although this card probably dates from the time it was the capital of German East Africa. The postcard was published by the Moloo Brothers, who in addition sold curios, carpets, gems, jewelery, perfumery, ivory and watches from their stores in Zanzibar, Dar es Salaam and Mombasa.
