|It always seems sad to me that these precious pictures got away from the family.|
|I always wonder about the story the picture is telling...|
|Who these people were, what they are doing...|
|This picture is from the German American Museum in Davenport|
|I love a picture with women wearing aprons..|
Bert was still engrossed with the estate sale, so I went out to sit in the car to wait for her. As I was looking at the assortment of photographs. One of the pictures was a black and white formal wedding photo of a young couple. The gro m looked very stern. The bride's dress was short, with diamond shapes around the hem. There was some faint pencil writing in the corner. The words said, "Robert and Velma Tank, 1928."
Here's where the Ritaluck comes into play. Remember my friend and neighbor, Lorna Sawyer? Well -- her maiden name was Tank. I picked up my phone, and called Lorna.
I asked, "What were your Mom and Dad's first names?"
Lorna said, ""Robert and Velma."
When were they married?? Yep. 1928....
