Sunday morning in Marabastad. The view north along 6th Street towards Boom Street with Daspoort Ridge in the distance. Hoxies Supply Store, on the corner of Bloed Street and 6th Street, was established in the 1937. Initially the shop stocked fresh fish, cashew nuts and other produce from Mozambique. Hoxies is still based in Pretoria and has expanded to become a major supplier of frozen food products. The girl on the left, in front of Hoxies Supply Store, is wearing a traditional Southern Ndebele neck ring. Charlie Moja, on the right, with his homemade push-cart, was one of the bottle and scrap collectors of Marabastad. The boy carrying the Sunday newspapers has been identified as Trevor Ah-Dong.
