Playne - Anderton Brothers (Nakuru) - Established in 1904, in a wood and iron building, as general merchants and auctioneers, this firm has been of considerable use to the traveller as well as to the settler. Stocks of provisions, saddlery, soft goods, general merchandise, and native foodstuffs, are always on hand. General auctioneering is undertaken and monthly stock sales are held in their own stock-yards, which cover 3 acres. A hardware department is to be opened shortly for the benefit of farmers. The fitting out of safaris from start to finish is a special function of this firm and Mr E, Anderton will personally conduct a safari if required. Any one coming from England can be met at Mombasa by arrangement, while boys, horses, mules, donkeys, tents etc., will be prepared and ready to await the party at Nakuru. The partners are Mr C.S. Anderton and Mr F.C. Anderton (Mr E. Anderton being partner in safari work only.)
