Christmas 09

Thats Christmas 1909, a hundred and one years ago when Cecil Nevard sent this "pre coca-cola" Santa Claus postcard to his nephew, Ernie (Bill) Nevard in Canada. 1909 would have been their seventh Christmas in the New world since they left Essex, U.K. in 1903.


  1. Wow, what incredible family heirlooms. Fascinating to read about.

  2. This is all very fascinating. As a fellow Nevard I am curious what sort of family connections we may have. My father was Ernest Joseph, son of Hector Barrett who was a son of Henry William Nevard.
