In this picture, taken in Thessaloniki in 1919, my father Raphael Moshe is holding in his arms his daughter Nina Frances, nee Molho, my sister. They are posing next to my uncle’s car.

Our house was facing Cyprus Street, but its back part, the garage where Uncle Jacques Moshe was parking his car, was facing the street in the back, Broufa Street.

I remember that there were a number of cars in the city, not many private cars as compared to the taxis. Many taxis. And there were trams also, for public transport. And many cobbled streets.

The big avenue, Vassilisis Olgas, was cobbled. And as the tram was passing on it, it made a huge noise.
