Born in 1890 Zanzibar

"From a government sponsored and prestigious British East African business directory for 1908-9 come these descriptions of Abdool Hoosein & Bros & Co: firstly the Mombasa branch:

They import from England, the Continent, United States, India China and Japan, mostly piece goods.
