John, i confused myself taking these snaps..... I will return this week, took the wrong house, there is a wooden house on each side of 21-11th.... the colourful one being a church.....  Interesting part of the towns history these house, I am surprised that the company does not earmark one for future tourism , kinda like what they did at Cullinan... ANyhow, here are a few snaps, I shall return./....

 are-you-there

Mike, thanks for these pictures of 21/11th avenue.  I seem to remember that our wooden house, east of 21, was much larger.

When we moved into the new house, 21/11, my father planted two poles on the northern side of the house, from which he suspended his radio antennas.  I am amaged that after sixty (60) years those two poles are still standing there with nothinghttp://www.oranjemundonline.com/Forum/Smileys/Morty%27s%20Set/Youre_the_man.gif attached to them.    PROGRESS I SUPPOSE.  Who needs wooden poles?

Ok, John, got the pic, 1st thing is..... the photo was taken in my dad's front garden at E7-1st avenue, thats our dog , Sandy in the background.....

I was born in 70 and only moved to Omund in 72, Paul was born in 71/72 and also moved to Omund in June 72......

Rhona should be able to back me up, but the kid in the green stripes is beyond a doubt her brother Gary.......  If we do go according to your dating, Paul would only be about 12 months old and unable to stand and I would be 3 at the most......

However, this is a riddle, so when Jock comes around again, I will ask him if he remembers, as he took the snap.....

Interesting though....

Just spotted this one now...........the stripey shirt is definitely Gary...........we moved to O'mund in July '72 when I was only a few weeks old and Gary would of been 3 then..........I think '74 or '75 is the right year......Paul what's your two-pence worth?

Hi!

Is it possible to ask for a few pictures of our old house, E30-14th Avenue, please?
Whenever you are able to, would really appreciate it!

To be honest, I'm actually a bit "scared" to see what the place looks like now, we had a lovely garden which our domestic engineer, good old Elifas (who remained 60 years old for as long as we can remember), maintained so well.

 thnx

how about a picture of our wooden house 13 - 9 th ave and then 7 - 9th ave. Our neighbours were the van Niekerk's (Ina, Lina, Bokkie and Stephanie). Next to the 13 - 9 th ave were also van Niekerk's i think vaguely remember the name Jack, also the  Heilman's and Roodselaars. Not sure about the spelling. I loved our growing up years in Oranjemund, wouldn't change it for the world.
