The big day is here!
The big day has finally arrived – my parents’ wedding day!
Again, many newspaper articles talked about the big day. The next page of the book has a few included – I love how the event is described in such detail.
Here’s a close up of the first article.
The mystery of the handkerchief is solved! The hankie I wrote about here was carried by my paternal grandmother, Loraine Gunzendorfer Levy.
And a close up of the other article.
Look at that – another mention of the hankie adding that it was also carried by my great grandmother, Bertha Schwartz. And I know that it was, indeed, 56 years prior to my parents’ wedding that my great grandparents, Bertha Schwartz and Abraham Gunzendorfer, were married on September 9, 1894. You can read about it here.
And here’s the happy couple.
It will be fun to compare the photos with the description in these articles. Stay tuned for more!
