Uncle Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Okay, rationally I know there are few, if any, Oompa Loompas involved in my family history (although we are as a whole rather on the short side), and as far as I know "Bucket" is not a name on my geneaology tree...

Nonetheless I am pleased to share with you a picture of my Great Uncle Charlie.

His claim to fame?

He owned a Chocolate Factory. :)

Very deliciously lovely! Great picture of your ancestor, too -- where was his factory? I am intrigued!

Did he at least have a glass elevator?

He looks like he should be a movie star!

What happened to that particular chocolate shop?

Your brother's comment is great. Your family has the most interesting little tidbits, you should really write a book -- "The Facts, Fancies and Adventures of Spidergirl's geneology!"
It would be as intersting as any Dahl book guaranteed!
