A young couple poses for their portrait at the Stone Front Gallery in Independence, Kansas. The photographer was Al Brown. The photographer created a nice scene for this portrait. The young woman, in a very fancy dress,  is holding a posted envelope in one hand and a letter in the other. She is standing next to a small table which holds a book and a framed photograph of a child. The husband is dressed in a suit and is wearing a corsage. He has an appearance of being dazed by the process of being photographed. What is that item on the floor leaning on his chair. Is it a large envelope, magazine or newspaper? Whatever it is; it certainly does not enhance the photograph. The couple in this photograph are identified by an inscription on the reverse of the photograph. The woman’s name is Sue Singleton or Sue Singletore (last name not completely legible). The husbands first name is very difficult to decipher. The first letter of his name either begins with an “H” or an “A”.

  1. His head seems very small, but it must just be the hairstyle.

  2. The posted envelope is probably symbolic of missed family, perhaps. The white object on the floor is very distracting. Surely the photographer did not forget to remove something that could have fallen. Again, maybe it is symbolic too! Intriguing photo.
