    I am doing a family tree and just yesterday found that a lady on my tree (1920 ish) was described as “the prop. of the Allandale Hotel”. Her name was Grace Smith and she was the widow of a civil servant in the Public Works Department.
    The Smith family seemed to have lived Rangoon/Moulmein from 1820-1920.
