Zohra, As She Was: Photos From the Fifties
Ah, don't we love the infinite possibilities of linking up with people offered by TALIMblog. The most recent example:
I am one of James and Marguerite McBey's nieces. I happened on your blog about Zohra. It is lovely. My mother, two sisters and I spent the summer of 1956 living next door to Marguerite and James in Gazebo, Marguerite's mother's house. As you can imagine, it was a memorable experience. We knew Zohra and her family. I am most interested to learn that Zohra has children living in the US. Can you by any chance put us in touch with them?
Fast forward, and the McBey nieces have been in touch with Zohra's US family, thanks to relatives here in Morocco. Small world, getting smaller.
Here are the girls, pictured with Zohra (in the flowered dress) at El Foulk, the McBey home on the Old Mountain outside Tangier, in 1956. Again, many thanks to the McBey nieces Barbara, Joan, and Katie, and to John Dickson, whose Morocco portfolio contains many beautiful images of Tangier and some rarely seen interiors of El Foulk.
