Old Photos

Happy Wedding Day!!

Today I am happy to share this wedding photo.  The bride wears a lovely matching skirt and bolero jacket, with a white silk blouse with lace at the collars and cuff.  A sprig of flowers, similar to what the groom wears, is pinned to her blouse.  She has a very tiny waist!

Our groom sports a watch chain, and a tie with a very large knot.

The information about the photographer was trimmed, perhaps to fit this photo in an album or frame.  I would date this photo to the early 1890’s due to the groom’s tie and the sleeves of the bride’s jacket.  Lacy panels make a nice backdrop.

Any thoughts?
