A photograph can say so much, especially if
you no longer live in Oranjemund. With a photograph you can remember
the past or see how things have changed! You can remember people
and places that are perhaps no longer around.
These photographs are just a sample of what I have , but due to
space restrictions, I have downsized them.
There is no story to accompany the photographs,
just a posting of loads of photographs. If I ever get the time,
I will add comment to each one.
If you can add any comment to any of the photographs, please email
me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The photographs have been scrounged wherever I can find them,
so If by chance I have one of yours and you wish to have it removed
or acknowledged, then contact me.
When you click on a topic on the right, this window
will stay open and a Photo Album window will pop open. Just close
the Photo Album window to return here.
Please send me any photographs you have that would
be off an interest to any ex Oranjemunders. Just make sure they
have been scaled down to a size at least less than 300kb.
The above photo is Michelle and
David Long, and for some strange reason I also remembered the day
the Jet came to Town.
Padre' Cawthorne performing the
marriage vows for the Kemp's Daughter's wedding. The photo was
submitted by Robert Bruce who believe it or not happens to be the
choirboy at the back. We are looking for names to the faces.
UPDATE: Well we had the bride in
the photo, Jacky Behr contact us and I include her comments -
"Hi Michael, Imagine
my amazement. I had a sms from
Errol Trethewey last night giving me your website, and telling
me to have a look at my wedding photo!!! Got onto
the web immediately. How nostalgic I became. My
maiden name was Kemp (Eve and Chris Kemp's daughter) and I married
the now late Pete Behr on 4th Aprl 1964.......43 years ago!!! We
left Oranjemund in 1967 so I don't know too may of the people
listed under Contacts. I tried to put my particulars
on but it was rejected, so I obviously did something wrong, but
will try again.
I dug out my wedding photos so that I can put
some names to the faces on the photo, but am ashamed to say that
there are a lot that even I don't remember. My 2 bridesmaids were
Ann and Jennifer Bruce, Roberts sisters. Lets start from Robert
on the extreme right. Next to him is my dad, Chris
Kemp, then Father Cawthorne, Iris Kemp (married to my late brother
Ken), tall lady above my head is Maureen Kemp nee Kretchmer, married
to my late brother Tony).Left of the bridegroom is my Mom (Eve
Kemp) then Tony Kemp, next to him (hiding) is Errol Trethewey
who I still in contact with.
The photo is very small , but if I can get it enlarged, maybe
I can give you some other names.
I am also still in contact with Binnie Fouche, Hennie Pelser
and Ikie Johnston.......all from that same era......50 years of
friendship with some of them.
I live in White River,Mpumalanga
