Interesting old picture.

I was in Malawi on Lake Maclear in June 2011, and sailed past the mooring point for the old Imperial Airways and BOAC flying boats. Itahs changed so much and yet so little. Obviously, in this photograph, Imperial Airways/BOAC had cleared much of the brush onshore to facilitate operations. Much of the vegetation has grown back now, and there are a few more houses and buildings in the location than there were when this photo was taken.

It remains a beautiful spot, however, and one well worth visiting.
