The Kirando station on Lake Tanganyika / GEA in past and present (Part II)


The drone aerial photo from nowadays gave a good impression about the location of the remaining parts of Kirando Mission.

The first photo shows definitely the mission Kirando (St. Franz-Xaver) and comes from the Colonial Archive in Frankfurt,
( . . . even if the picture title states: Viktoria-See mit Häusern / A b III 359 / D.O.A.)

From the same direction; view from the north-west lake side. Left, the `Brother House´, the Church in the centre and
`Sisters house´ on the right, west side of the complex.

The `Sisters House´, from the south court inside. The arcades in the 1st floor with pointed arches of the window frames.

The Kirando station on Lake Tanganyika / GEA in past and present (Part VIII)


This photo from the inside of the church is one of the last photos before the mission was closed and finally abandoned,
at the end of the 40s of the 20. Century. The main reason was the decline of the lake level and the abandonment of the
local population.
