Unidentified wedding party with older couple


Unidentified wedding party with older couple


Black and white image of a wedding party, consisting of two men, two women, and two young girls. The groom and groomsman wear dark suits and bow ties; the groomsman has a 'toothbrush' mustache, indicating this picture was most likely taken before World War II when this mustache became linked with Hitler and Nazism. The women in the group wear similar long dresses; the bride's has a large yoke with buttons and a small collar, and ruffles or pleating at the bottom. She wears a small hat and holds a large bouquet of roses. The other three have matching dresses with puffed short sleeves, small collars, and sashes at the waist. The bridesmaid wears lace gloves and a large, flat-brimmed hat and holds a bouquet of lilies. The two young girls wear bonnets and have smaller bouquets. This image is part of the Herbert E. McMullen bequest. McMullen was a local photographer; he owned Hillsboro Studio and also collected photographs taken in the area by other photographers.
