This is a shot into the dark, but I have a photo from 1939 Malaya of a family friend by the name "Mrs Gow" May have been taken around KL. My aunt worked at The Rubber Institute.
I may have another shot someplace if it's the right Gow family?

Really sorry I dont know the answer.  It seems very probable.  The family were in KL  at the  time, do you have an address?  I will look at the pictures I do have, it may well the wife of one of the 3 brothers.

I don't have any address but I might have a better view of the home which may match up to something you have, I'll check and post as soon as I can find it. I'm in the process of sorting photos so getting beter organized all the time

Hi, Alexander Gow and Isabelle Alexandrine Simon were my great grandparents. My grandmother was their daughter, Agnes Gow who married Tjong Tiong Oei. Agnes Gow died in Hong Kong around 1944. I have a copy of Alexander Gow's birth certificate as well as a copy of the internment register in Singapore. If anyone has more information on Isabelle Simon, it would be appreciated. Was she French/English?
