During the past week, my niece, Amanda, shared the photo above on one of the social media platforms we frequent. She said “Look what I came across!” It is a photo of me (left) and my younger (but taller) brother, James, on his wedding day. I was Jim’s best man in the ceremony when he married Darla, who also happened to be one of my classmates in High School.
I have never seen this photo despite having (obviously) been there when it was taken in July of 1970. Someone may have posed us in the tie-fixing photo but the truth is that I just don’t remember. The wedding took place nearly 53 years ago. But, there we are, all young and dapper-looking, preparing for the wedding. I was about to turn 27 and Jim was 23 years old.
Niece Amanda also attached one more photo in her social media post of the wedding couple and their folks:
These photos will be added to my collection of nostalgic items archived on the genealogy website that I use.
