A 20's wedding

My, my, my...Nelson Photo Studio went through some changes! Now, the picture is embossed
rather than imprinted with their

These are John and Ket's daughters, Mary and Agnes, on the occasion of Mary's wedding to George Block. This is the Mary who was known as "Girlie", probably even as a child...evidently, parents didn't check around to see how many other kids were being named Mary at the same (There were four between 1886 and 1927, PLUS grandma Mary...)

What pretty dresses--looks like satin, and a fur or maribou hem for Agnes--COOL. This coulda been the girliest day in Girlie's (I just realized I've been waiting to use that pun ALL my life!)
