My grandmother, Martha Jane (Joan Staple) with daughter Sheila in uniform of Kowloon Primary School ? - aged about four so approximately 1933 

Date picture taken


A couple of interesting things about this photo, when you compare it with the others apparently taken a couple of years earlier...the house next door seems to be new (it is not in the earlier photos, I think, as they are all set back quite a way), and the facade on that 'new' next door house looks very similar to the facade on the house in the first photo you posted up (ie, looking across the road). It has a curved balcony and white railings too, although I'm aware that there were other similar houses in the area (Kowloon Tong was built using a small selection of model houses).
