The Victoria Falls

Small part of the Victoria FallsWhat is the local name for the falls? …  

Victoria Falls at a distanceKnown to Africans as ‘The Smoke that Thunders’.

I saw the clouds from the spray and heard the ‘thunder’ 25 miles away!

In 1962, on leave from the Tanganyika Police Services, the writer made a grand tour of Central, Southern Africa, in a battered old Land Rover, a relic of the ill fated Tanganyikan Groundnuts Scheme of the early 1950’s.

The 5 photos in this set were a ‘black and white’ interlude in a ‘colour slide’ era of photography, in the then Northern Rhodesia.
