A Short History of Bulawayo 1868-2017

by Paul Hubbard

Bulawayo, Zimbabwe is a kindly and interesting city, filled with characters who fascinate and inspire. Almost from the moment of the founding of the modern city in 1894, Bulawayo has been aware of its past. The author has been researching the history of the city from its earliest days to the present time, with the aim of publishing its story in great detail. Published for a charity, this booklet is therefore only a modest contribution to that historical journey. The short booklet is produced from the text of four talks on the history of Bulawayo given by the author in 2017. Additionally readers are are referred to a list of references.
