50TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY
My husband and I, along with his brothers and their wives, are in the midst of planning a party in celebration of his parent's 50th wedding anniversary, which is on October 8. In honor of such an outstanding milestone, I thought I'd share the following photo:
The only family member I recognize in the photo is my maternal grandmother, Susie Kleckner Royer, seated at the far right in the dark dress. Obviously the stalwart bride is behind her cake, with her well-turned-out groom to her right, but I have no idea who anyone is. From the dress styles and my grandmother's apparent age, I'd place this photo in the early 1940s, if for no other reason than there's a decided lack of young people present. In 1943, my parents were traveling around the country while my father was being trained in the art of war. So I'm assuming that any cousins, grandchildren, etc. are doing the same and were unable to attend this important event.
I think every house in this era had a print of Da Vinci's Last Supper behind the dining table. I love the old-style telephone, too. Most likely a party line.
