South African Airways - Junkers F.13/Ju-52 and Avro York color schemes

Colleaues - do you have any pictures (or do you know any source) with pictures of F.13 in SAA colors? I found only Junkers with Union Airways titles, but later on SAA operated type - did they flew with South African Airways names painted. Avro York ZS-registered were operated all silver with cheatline, without South African Airways titles; was it the only color scheme worn by ZS- Yorks (some sources show drawings of Yorks painted similar way as Lodestar - with South African Airways titles, blue accents, etc)? And there were colorful Ju-52s - with blue fuselage front/engine cowlings and part of wings as well. Where I can find details of this livery?

The only shot I have of an F13 doesn't show any SAA titles at all.

Neither does the shot I have of a York. It has the name painted on and an SAA logo but doesn't appear to have any titles. You might want to check here http://www.villadcocos.com/BeckerPics/ but you'll have tyo know the registration of the aircraft. Here are the F13's
