Friday Heritage Scrap lift-Luca

Luca married my mother 4 years after he arrived in South Africa. They had two children. Sebbastiano and Nunzia. He had a quota for crayfish and in the off season he caught mostly snoek. He made a good living and when he sold his boat and quota licence had enough money to retire. Most of the Italians that arrived that day were family friends and some of them still live in Cape Town.

Oh, what a wonderful page Belle and how interesting he was in the newspaper and you have it to scrap. I really like your background and the way you highlighted Luca's face close up in the life preserver. Your journaling is so interesting and you placed it in the perfect place. Super layout.

What an interesting piece of family history! And how fascinating to see that you have the same melting pot of immigrants that we do, makes for a far more interesting country :-). Loved reading your notes along with the newspaper piece and seeing the photos. Your grungy watery feel to this page is magnificent and I love it.

It sounds like your stepfather was an interesting man. How great that you have the actual photo of his arrival in SA. I really like the papers and colors you chose. Fascinating layout!
