This album, compiled by Trotter, contains 22 pictures of H.M. Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother's visit to East Africa in February 1959. Trotter took a huge number of photographs during this visit, and this selection represents a very small number of the images available in negative form. As with the photographs of Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip in 2001/090/1/4/1, it is clear that Trotter was allowed considerable access during the visit, and took many photographs at close quarters.
There are a number of pictures taken inside the gardens of Government House, Nairobi, with Queen Elizabeth accompanied by Sir Evelyn and Lady Mary Baring, the Governor of Kenya and his wife. She is also pictured with them at a state reception. There are images of her boarding the Royal train which carried her around Kenya, arriving at Entebbe Airport and in her official car. She is shown making official visits in Nakuru, Aberdare National Park, the Eldoret Show, Baraza and Nakivubu Stadium and inspecting a Police guard of honour at Narok. A number of the images show her being presented with gifts or being cheered by wellwishers.
There are many more photographs from this visit in the sets of prints at 2001/090/1/3, most notably in 2001/090/1/3/3 and 2001/090/1/3/10. A number of images have also been digitised from the negatives and are available at 2001/090/1/1/25938-26056.
