Uyui: Picha ya Ndege ya iliyopigwa Tabora Miaka 1950

Vickers Viscount Demonstrator G-AMAV Picha hii ilichukuliwa kati Mwezi Machi 1955 na Juni 1957 Mkoani Tabora. Ni picha ya Ndege aina ya Vickers Viscount Demonstrator G- AMAV. Inaonekana ilikuwa katika ziara ya mauzo kutoka Uingereza kwenda Rhodesia ya kusini (ambayo sasa Zimbabwe) na Afrika Kusini) – kumbuka hasa katika picha ya juu kuwa mafuta ya kwenye mapipa haikuwa aghalabu kupatikana Tabora kama inavyooneka.

Picha hizi zilipigwa na Baba wa Colin ambaye ni Marehemu Ken Crossley , aliyekuwa Air Traffic Mdhibiti ( ATCO ) walioajiriwa na Mkurugenzi wa Civil Aviation Afrika Mashariki Services ambaye alikuwa kuwajibika kwa masuala yote ya anga katika Afrika Mashariki kutoka miaka ya 1940 kwa wakati mwingine katika miaka ya 1970 . Yeye alikuwa kikazi katika uwanja wa ndege mpya wa jijini Dar es Salaam kuanzia Novemba 1954 Machi 1955 wakati alipohamishiwa kikazi Tabora na kukaa huko hadi Machi 1957 na tena kutoka huko Machi 1958 na Septemba 1958 wakati alipohamia Zanzibar ambako alikaa hadi Aprili 1960.

Habari hizi ni kwa hisani ya Colin M Crossley – Uingereza

Uyui tunamshukuru sana Colin kwa kutupatia picha na maelezo hayo.

According to Colin his late father was stationed at the New airport in Dar es Salaam from November 1954 to March 1955 when he moved Tabora and stayed there to March 1957 and again from  March 1958 to September 1958 when he moved to Zanzibar where he stayed to April 1960.

Uyui: (Tabora coin) Sio wengi wanaojua kuwa Tabora ilikuwa na Sarafu yake ya dhahabu 1916

Kufungia Stori 1

The 1916 “Tabora Pound” – 15 Rupien Gold Coin
from German East Africa

Commercial banking was introduced in German East Africa in 1905, when the Deutsch-Ostafrikanische Bank opened its office in Dar es Salaam. This bank had a concession from the German Government to issue its own notes and coins, which helped the bank to meet the demand for coins in exchange for its notes. In 1911, another German bank, the Handelsbank fuer Ostafrika, opened a branch in Tanga. Then came the first world war.The “Tabora Pound”, a gold coin valued at 15 Rupees, was designed by mining industry expert Friedrich Schumacher at Tabora and weighs 6.8 gram (gold).

Pauni ya dhahabu ya Tabora ya mwaka 1916  ya dhahabu iliyokuwa na thamani ya Rupia 15″Tabora Pound”

Benki ya Kibiashara ilianzishwa na Utawala wa Wajerumani Afrika ya Mashariki mwaka 1905 wakati Benki ya Deutsch-Ostafrikanische ilipofungua ofisi yake Jijini Dar es Salaam. Benki hii ilikuwa na idhini kutoka Serikali ya Ujerumani ya kutoa sarafu na noti zake ili kuiwezesha kutimiza mahitaji ya ubadilishaji wa sarafu kwa noti. Ilipofika mwaka 1911 Benki nyingine ya Kijerumani iitwayo Handelsbank fuer Ostafrika ilifungua tawi lake Tanga, baada ya hapo vita vikuu vya kwanza vya Dunia vikatokea. Pauni ya Tabora, ya dhahabu yenye thamani sawa na rupia 15 ilibuniwa na mtaalamu wa Sekta ya madini Friedrich Schumacher hapo Tabora na ilikuwa na uzito wa gramu 6.8 (ikiwa ni dhahabu)

Dear Wife, Partners and colleagues

1. From 12 June to 13 July 2014, you should read the sports section of the newspaper so that you are aware of what is going on regarding the World Cup, and that way you will be able to join in the conversations. If you fail to do this, then you will be looked at in a bad way, or you will be totally ignored. DO NOT complain about not receiving any attention.

2. During the World Cup, the television is mine, at all times, without any exceptions. If you even take a glimpse of the remote control, you will lose it (your eye).

3. If you have to pass by in front of the TV during a game, I don’t mind, as long as you do it crawling on the floor and without distracting me. If you decide to stand nude in front of the TV, make sure you put clothes on right after because if you catch a cold, I won’t have time to take you to the doctor or look after you during the World Cup month.

4. During the games I will be blind, deaf and mute, unless I require a refill of my drink or something to eat. You are out of your mind if you expect me to listen to you, open the door, answer the telephone, or pick up the baby that just fell on the floor….It won’t happen.

5. It would be a good idea for you to keep at least 2 six packs in the fridge at all times, as well as plenty of things to nibble on, and please do not make any funny faces to my friends when they come over to watch the games. In return, you will be allowed to use the TV between 12am and 6am, unless they replay a good game that I missed during the day.

6. Please, please, please!! If you see me upset because one of my teams is losing, DO NOT say “get over it, it’s only a game”, or “don’t worry, they’ll win next time”. If you say these things, you will only make me angrier and I will love you less. Remember, you will never ever know more about football than me and your so called “words of encouragement” will only lead to a break up or divorce.

7. You are welcome to sit with me to watch one game and you can talk to me during halftime but only when the commercials are on, and only if the halftime scores is pleasing me. In addition, please note I am saying “one” game; hence do not use the World Cup as a nice cheesy excuse to “spend time together”.

8. The replays of the goals are very important. I don’t care if I have seen them or I haven’t seen them, I want to see them again. Many times.

9. Tell your friends NOT to have any babies, or any other child related parties or gatherings that requires my attendance because:
a) I will not go,
b) I will not go, and
c) I will not go.

10. But, if a friend of mine invites us to his house on a Sunday to watch a game, we will be there in a flash.

11. The daily World Cup highlights show on TV every night is just as important as the games themselves. Do not even think about saying “but you have already seen this…why don’t you change the channel to something we can all watch?” because, the reply will be, “Refer to Rule #2 of this list”.

12. And finally, please save your expressions such as “Thank God the World Cup is only every 4 years”. I am immune to these words, because after this comes the Champions League, Italian League, Spanish League, Premier League, FA Cup, etc.
