  4. Hi Eli, Hope you and Jill are well and looking forward to your SA trip. Eli, I asked Harry Gurwitz and Michael if they could help name the girls in the photo with Jerry, Michael, Harry and Max. I remember the name of the one on the front, Norma Maisel nee Shwer, and the faces of the others I know, but not the names. Michael and Harry can’t remember, now can Jerry and myself, I have an old friend ex CT living in Melbourne and I sent it to him and he asked if I could name those girls. Is there anyway you could find out for me please., I would appreciate it. Love, Denise

  5. On your Memories of Muizenberg below……the third photograph ….the one with Michael, Jerry, Harry etc in plus the girls. That is the photo I would like to know the names of the girls. As I mentioned before, Michael can’t remember their names either, so I wondered if you knew anybody who could name the girls. Cheers, Denise
