I have a copy of a photo of the girls' school production (Lawrence School,
Lovedale), Hansel & Gretel in 1928.
The photo has the names of the girls participating (no 1st names, just
initials). The surnames may not be spelt correctly but I transcribe them as
Maybe you will find someone from your family there as I did. The photo came
from the album of Grace Patient, a former pupil, who lives in a retirement
home in Masterton.... a small world. She is the small cat in the photo.

I have the photo saved in two different formats ....neither brilliant, Word
and jpg. The jpg, 70kb, is the complete page from the album but the faces
are hard to distinguish. The Word file, over 700kb, is just of the photo, no
names, but is easier to zoom in and see some faces a little more clearly. If
anyone would like me to send them a file attachment (scanned by Norton's
Antivirus!) just ask. (Depending on your internet connection, the Word file
may take some time to download. If I reduce the file size, the faces become
less distinct again).
The blessings of the Season to you all,
