Now a nursery, though once perhaps a manager's bungalow. The Imperial Tobacco Syndicate began buying tobacco in Nyasaland in 1908, the year the railroad arrived. The crop had been grown here since 1889, when it was established by the Buchanan Brothers. (Buchanan was also the second British consul, just before Harry Johnston.) By 1905 there were a hundred growers, and they were exporting tobacco to South Africa, presumably by cart. By 1958, 73,000 African growers in Nyasaland produced 25 million pounds, compared to 9 million grown on European-owned estates.
