Notes from Nona:

We always had tea or coffee after the piano concerts -- this photo shows the Gabriel family (daughters Laura and Barbara were pupils) and the two ladies on the left hand side were Nina Smirnoff (sitting in the middle) and Ida Close (her husband Samuel Gerzo, HKVDC, died during the Japanese invasion on Christmas Day 1941 and after the war she remarried Joe Close, an English army officer).  My grandmother is at the head of the table with another Russian lady but whose name I don't remember :(
