young couple

A well dressed young wedding couple pose for their portrait in Lawrence, Massachusetts. Both subjects are wearing corsages and the young man is holding what appears to be a program or certificate. The photograph shows no affection or emotional connection between the groom and the bride. A fitting wedding present may have been a gift certificate for marital therapy. The photographer of this image is S. R. Page. Mr. Page appears in the US census of 1900 and the data indicates that he was born in Canada in 1865. He immigrated to the United States in 1894 and was married to a woman named Felinne. The census also indicates that he worked as a photographer. The 1897 Lawrence City Directory reports that Page worked as a photographer at the same address as seen on this cabinet card.   (SOLD)

  1. Hi, I like your site. If you get a chance, check mine out. I have a lot of photos. Also, was wondering if you might know who this is. I know it is somebody I have seen before, I just can’t remember who!

  2. They do look a tad stunned

  3. Talk about twins, could not have gotten any closer. Wow..
