Cape Town, the town Emily Kleintjies was born in, and loved. It broke her heart when she learned as a teenager, that she was classified as a second class citizen by the Government. At the young age of 16 years old, she decided to escape to Johannesburg, and make a life for herself as a WHITE, with the name of Emma Kline.

The small Church on King Edward Street Potchefstroom, later renamed Kerk Street, was the church that Marie Stuart married in.

The Kings Hotel c/r Potgieter Street and King Edward Street is the Hotel Emma always stayed in.
