Photos on the following pages were taken by the author: 24, 53, 54, 57, 60, 63, and 64.

Photos on the following pages are reproduced with the kind permission of the Consolata Fathers and are from their archives in Turin: 9, 12, 14, 25, 44, 45 and 47.

The photos on the pages 35 and 40 were reproduced from an anonymously written and undated cyclostyled report I found in the Ministry of Agriculture library titled, History and Customs Relative to the Settlement of Kiambu. I would date it to around 1955 or so.

The photograph on page 55 is from the frontispiece to John Boyes' book, John Boyes, King of the Wa-Kikuyu. The copyright is held by the Bodleian Library, Oxford.
