Last week, while surfing one of my
favorite places for old photos, I found this one... and the new owner
Lisa was kind enough to scan in the picture for our site. The
only info we know about it is that the photographer was S.S. Clark and
it was taken in Shawano, Wis. What struck me about the cabinet
photo was the wedding dress! Such DETAIL! and so very
gorgeous... oh, and the bride's fingerless gloves...
And a little
about wedding dresses...
1930’s the most common
black wedding dresses that could be used over and over again as ‘the
were dresses to be worn for many years, forever altered in size and
more common wedding dress around the
looked like this: It was black
It was wool,
high-necked and tight waisted. The tight waist was often achieved by a
corset. It was elegant, but rather impractical. Fast movements and
other kinds of free physical activity were not possible in this dress.
I can only imagine
the amount of ironing & pressing with the old-fashioned flat irons to
make this dress look perfect for the wedding day.
And many thanks
again to our "Guardian Angel",
Lisa, for sharing
this stunning photo with us and we hope to have the identity of this
handsome couple to add to the photo.
