  • Author's notes:
    Alfred ('Old Man') Collins was Sir Hans Heysen's neighbour in Billygoat Lane (now Collins Street), Hahndorf.

    "Sallie' is the affectionate name that friends used for Hans's wife Selma (Lady Selma Heysen). She regarded her husband's paintings like 'children' and hated parting with them.

    Sontag's Bakery was located in Main Street, Hahndorf. 'Kuchen' is the German word for 'cake'.
