Olga Bahler

Last week's challenge on DaisyTrail http://www.daisytrail.com/ was to scrap a vintage photograph or picture add to add a title, but no journalling. I chose a favourite picture of mine, three sisters from Switzerland, one of whom - Olga Bahler - married my Uncle Ernest. And this week, my scrapbook page was chosen as the winner. Here it is:

Olga Bahler, I am told, was a very clever lady. She could speak four languages fluently. She met my grandmother, Edith Davies Williams, whilst they were both working in service in Ireland. When Edith (and another friend) decided to return to North Wales, Olga returned with them. That is how a beautiful lady from Switzerland came to meet and marry Ernest Davies Williams at Minera in Denbighshire.
