The Love Birds

Here's a 1909 wedding photo of the man who sent the valentine, in a previous post, and the woman who received it (my grandparents). His letters from the oilfields were just as sweet 30 years later as when they were first married. Incidentally, though she soon got heavy, Grandma had a 19 inch waist when they were married.

A handsome couple! I love Grandma's hat. I wish women now in the US would wear them more often.

I'm just old enough to remember hats in church as a little kid, MB. I could HEAR the preacher, but I couldn't always SEE him!
