The Centenary of WW1 has awakened our memories and emotions of the past.
The participants often chose to try and forget their experiences, and, if they spoke about it, it was only to those who had gone through the same horrors.
Their descendants are trying to preserve and understand what remains of their sacrifice.
It is not unusual at our design counter for there to be tears while discussing the presentation of these very personal items that mean so much to their owners.
As a picture framer it is essential to have or to access both correct preservation and presentation procedures, as well as understanding the nature of the contents intended for display.
