The Jansz featured in the article is Harry. His father, Henry, died in 1947, which explains why Harry took over the shop in that year, as noted at the end of the article. Also as noted in the article, Harry helped re-organize the Turf Club after the Occupation. I’ve mentioned before that the Club was one of the original tenants of the Cheng Bok Building. That space was lost during the Occupation – so when the club had to be re-organized, Henry gave his son the use of some space in the Grenier shop as a temporary (and minimal) office. Also mentioned in the article are others I knew in Ipoh, including a Labrooy and a Caleb. Much later, Nicky Caleb’s son went off to Singapore and became a physician, if I recall correctly. Come to think of it, I also knew the reporter who wrote the article. He was a good photographer. I wonder if he is still alive.
