    You've posted 4 photographs several times each. Would you post other examples of the collection that might provide a better sense of place?

    The Defense of the Realm Act was from England, WWI and the pictures do look like they were taken in the 1910s/1920s. Would be cool to see more and maybe find additional info!

    If WWI it has a look of German East Africa , Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania.

    The British Empire forces fought the Germans there for 4 years in a guerrilla campaign , lots of merchant ships were used.

    The Royal Naval Air Service in WWI later became the RAF

    Can you post any more architectural photos? They are the only ones that provide a sense of place.
