This was taken on my grandparents’ Frank and Annie Bland’s farm, Nuwejaarsvlei in the Harrismith district. The farm is now under Sterkfontein Dam. Here’s older sis Pat pushiing Mother Mary in the pram in the farmyard.
The Nuwejaarspruit runs from there down to the Wilge river and then on to the Vaal river. Sterkfontein dam was built on the spruit and drowned the farm under Tugela river water. You would now have to scuba dive to see the farmhouse.
Then they moved into town – Harrismith
