Sinna Matshikha (nee Jason) born 1st April 1912 and died 8th January 2007 - my aunt affectionately known as 'Grootma' (great mother). She was my mother's eldest sister and the only one left in her family.

Here she was working as a domestic in East London. The photograph was taken in 1935. The girl's name I think is Nola. I tried to track Nola down through several magazines last year for an updated reunion photo - but it was not to be. Rest in peace.
