The Hill
Pat Ellison has kindly provided the folllowing information relating to this picture:
"The large house on the left was owned & built by the Pienaars who also had Springbok Motors (Caltex) down towards the police station.The large building lower down on the left was Darwoodjees & the white building on the right was Excel Builders Supplies which my parents & grandparents owned. My father built both buildings along with many others in the town. My folks also had Mazabuka Garage & Cafe (BP service station) which was next door to Darwoodjies going down the hill. What a wonderful place to have grown up in!"
