Background: In The Hague in Holland the flags are flying. It is sure this must be an occasion.
People are looking in at the window and pressphotographers are present. No wonder, for this certainly is a special occasion. Mrs J.J. de Calonne-Meister celebrates this Monday, the 11th November her 108th birthday-anniversary.
The wife of the mayor of The Hague, Mrs van Kolfachoten, presented the 108 year old lady with a floral tribute.
After receiving this token of respect from the community of The hague, the rest of the birthday is celebrated en famille, amidst her children and grandchildren ..
Although 108 year is a very respectable age, she is not the oldest inhabitant of Holland, Mrs Chr. Karnebeck. Backs of Eibergen, near the German border, is 108 years and 40 days old.
