General Information:

SE - J.A. Nazareth - Nov 1907
Playne - The progress of development in BEA is marked by the fact that Messrs J.A. Nazareth & Brother have been appointed caterers to the Uganda Railway and the Lake Steamers for a period of 6 years. This firm which has branches in Mombasa, Fort Hall, and Kisumu, opened in Nairobi as far back as 1899, and has always at the disposal of the public a large stock of groceries, soft goods, crockery etc. Messrs Nazareth carry on an important business as bakers and soda-water manufacturers. The importance attached to the latter industry is shown by the fact that they can, if necessary, supply 150 dozen of soda water per day. ......
