Thomas Henry Thomas Paintings

As many readers of this blog will know we have been exploring the past of members of the society though the ever increasing Presidents Pages. Tthough this we have had some interesting internet comunications and some more fascinating information has come to us.

The family of Charles Tanfield Vachell and Eleanor Vachell  made contact with the society via our Twitter account showing us some interesting pictures of them and other pictures tht were in an album belonging to Eleanor

In these we spotted a picture by another of our former Presidents T. H. Thomas and after some emails back and fore we are able to now share with you some colour pictures by the illustrious artist and former president

We are very happy to have these to add to the information that we have about Thomas as the web pages we put together were a little "grey"

So now in colour (click images for larger versions)

We are extremely grateful to the Vachell family for sharing these treasures from their family archives with us and we hope to be able to continue this relationship in order to bring you more fascinating history of not only the Society, but of Cardiff and Wales as well
