Accession consists of photographs of the exterior and interior of the South African food store Sedo Snax located at 385 John Street in Thornhill, ON.
Photographs were taken by John Cohen as part of the OJA's Southern African Legacy Project. He e-mailed the images to the OJA soon after they were taken.
The Odes family opened Sedo Snax in 1991. At first the store was run by Solly and Sheila Odes with help from their son, Neil, on weekends and evenings. Originally Biltong, Boerewors and various baked goods were made in the store and the store sold bulk foods such as nuts and raisins. After sanctions were lifted against the import of South African goods, the store phased out the bulk food section and began selling more South African food products. In 2002, Neil took over the operation of the store. The store has moved 5 times since it first opened. It is currently located at 385 John Street in Thornhill, ON.
