  1. That mustache does not look real. Also, he looks pretty young compared to the woman.

    • I agree that by today’s standards the mustache does look fake. I don’t think many people today would want a mustache in that style. However, during the era of this photograph, mustaches of this type were not all that unusual. I can’t really assess the fellow’s age as the mustache blocks too much of his face. The bride’s age is also difficult to estimate. I think she has one of those faces that can belong to a person in their twenties as well as to someone in their forties. Color me stumped.

  2. This photo is indeed intriguing! And I appreciate the inclusion of those eggs! I wonder if the fact that eggs often come in various colors is what inspired Easter eggs?

    • I am glad that you appreciated the inclusion of the eggs. It was very tangential from the photograph but I couldn’t stop the impulse. Interesting theory about Easter eggs. I am going to try to research it and see if I can find the answer.
