A new found photo, postcard......
My mom had always had the framed wedding photo and I hadn't thought about it before but when my grandfather passed away in 1937 my mom was still in high school. A few years later she was married and my grandmother remarried. I assume that my grandmother didn't think she could hang her first wedding photo in her house when she remarried so she gave it to her daughter for safe keeping.
I really like the clarity of the photo and how you can see all the details of the shoes and clothing. I wasn't able to do that with my oval framed photo.
The photo is actually a postcard. I recognized my Grandmother's handwriting on the back. She was good to share the dates so I could verify my records. As a footnote to all of this, I have the wedding dress and bow and bracelet that is shown in the photo. My oldest niece Stacia has the necklace as my mom gave it to her many years ago.
