Djibouti dans les archives françaises (1888-1892) : éléments sur les débuts d'une ville coloniale

Abstract : The town of Djibouti was created after an Anglo-French territorial agreement around the Gulf of Tadjoura had opened the Southern roads toward Abyssinia to French influence. With the move in 1895 of the Messageries maritimes from Obock to Djibouti, it became a strategic imperial point linked to a local colonial ambition. The combination of extracts from French administrative archives enables to show how the urban process was organised from the beginning around the project of a colonial and segregated town. This documentation provides a point of view for a history of the Djibouti's town, which will need to include, in order to be fully understandable the view from the inhabitants themselves.
