A Double-Storey Hut.

By A. E. Snowden

Double-Storey Hut

The photograph, shows a double-storey hut situated on "Paradise" farm, Marandellas, Rhodesia, the property of Dr. MacLaran.

It was built some years ago by a Mohammedan Native named Tsimba of the Ayao tribe from Lake Nyasa. He vacated this dwelling about three years ago.

The article, which appeared in the 1938 edition of NADA. Unfortunately because of the age of the paper and the quality of the print, the scan quality is poor.
NADA is an acronym for Native Affairs Department Annual and became the de facto name of the publication from its first edition in 1923 to about 1980.

Nice hut. I loved it.Nowadays such huts are rare to see.Even though it is old print the hut is beautiful. I can't clearly make out the picture. There is somebody standing front of the hut. Probably that must be owner of the hut.I wonder if this hut still exists.This will be the best place for the writers like me. For any kind of help you ca approach write my paper as I am working for past 7 years.
