This is a photo of Ginny(my younger sister). She has not got her license yet. It worries me that she will be driving in this Gauteng traffic.

This motor bike and side-car looks like I remember seeing a photo of the one my Dad had around about 1957/8
My Mum went in it, but I heard she was not too keen.

You are lucky to have photos of your uncle & his motor bike, I think I have one of my step father & my good self by his motor bike & sidecar, this is before they got their first car. A 1932 Ford 8 rust bucket, I buried it in a pond after taken the body off the chassie 6 years later.
