the wiar home
The Wiar home, with Oscar, Elizabeth, Frank, & Bob (Robert). Photo 3510, shared by Dianne Anderson.
Dianne Anderson provided two engagement pictures. One is very traditional. The other is more modern, of the kind that people in 1970s thought they had invented in the 1970s, with nature as the background....
Nothing in those two pictures prepares you for this glorious post-wedding picture! The bride standing alone, the groom on a donkey, the Home Guard (WW I was ongoing, and the U.S. would be involved before long), the band members (looks like a cornet, clarinet, & baritone), the definitely-not-white Methodist Church in the background..... "No wedding bells for me," says one sign; did that young man eventually get married?" And another sign seems to say "Whole Darn Family," which would make sense for Charles Cook joining the Wiars!
