SCMP Staff circa 1949.jpg

A photo of SCMP Staff members taken on the rooftop of SCMP offices in 1949 (date inferred from its position in my photo album).  John Prettejohn (my father) standing on the very left.  Johnny Luke is 4th row, second from left.  Freddie Wong is on the right of the group of three standing at the rear in the middle of the picture. I only know Uncle Luke and Uncle Freddie in the picture as they were were my godfathers.

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
Saturday, January 1, 1949

The 4th person sitting from the left is Henry Ching Sr.

W. Phoon.

If one compares the 1949 SCMP staff photo with a similar staff photo from 1941, there are a few familiar faces in the group.
