Giving gifts at Christmas is a widely practiced tradition around the world and with current events leaving many feeling isolated, we wanted to bring a smile to people’s faces by promoting sentimental gifts this season.
This Christmas, rather than focusing on the most expensive or extravagant gifts, giving something heartwarming can help bring memories back to life. Here at Chums we have been working hard to do just that by adding colour to black and white photos that will be gifted to family members this Christmas. From engagements at Christmas to an honour from the late King George V, we have received some touching stories this festive season. Be sure to read on to learn more.
Found in the Price family photo album, this glamorous lady has been a mystery apart from her name - which is written on the back of the photo. Although her story is yet to be uncovered, her distant relative wants to bring the image to life to display as part of their family heritage.
In this photograph we see four generations: Olwen (far left), her daughter Margaret, her granddaughter Sarah and then Sarah’s son, baby Bryn. This colourised photo will be gifted to Bryn, who is now 91!, on Christmas day.
This is Arthur Davies, a theatre manager in London, meeting King George V in the early 1900s. The meeting became a tale relatives would tell about family gone by, but as there was no proof, younger generations were not convinced. That is until the family were looking to move home and came across evidence of the event. This year the Davies family are bringing the event to life in the hopes that Arthur Davies’ story will live on with the proof to back it up.
This is the Coady family, from Scotland, and although the image looks to be from the late 1800s, grandfather Robert is still remembered today by his grandchild, Agnes, who is now a grandmother herself. The image will be gifted to Agnes this year to help her family's memory live on.
Thank you for all of the wonderful stories we received. It is a gift to learn about times gone by and pass stories down through the generations.
