Dar es Salaam is the largest city in Tanzania and also a major port in East Africa. The region,
known formerly as German East Africa, was a German colony until captured by the British
during World War 1 - it was then named Tanganyika. You will see that many of our old
postcards are in German. After independence in 1961 Dar es Salaam continued to act as the
capital of the country, and remained as the capital after the 1964 merger with Zanzibar until
1973 when the administrative centre was moved to Dodoma.
