Wedding Photo of Amy Brooksby and Lemuel Bert Hutchins: This is my great great grandparent's wedding photo. They were married 1905 in Flagstaff, AZ. The bracelet seen on her wrist in this photo is a turquoise and silver cuff that my mother has now.
in Flagstaff, Coconino County, AZ
Robert Miller NIce. Good they are around the same age too. He's not some old bearded Zeek...
Cathy Daniel So young! Glad times have changed!
Christina M. Bensen-Locke Back when brides didn't look like call girls.
Georgia Reavis Myers Smith I know this may sound lame.....but her face looks so "modern" - very beautiful.
Alice Watts Agree.

Alice Watts I love to look at old photos with a magnifying glass---you can see many things that otherwise would have gone unnoticed. Hands tell amazing stories, as well as the eyes. also the details on clothing and jewelry as well as the background .

Melissa Holt Growing up this was one of my favorite pictures to look at... and when I was a teenager I noticed that she was wearing a bracelet. The photo has faded a little bit since then, but with a magnifying glass I made out that the bracelet had 2 rows of stones on it, and one of the stones was missing. My mother had it in her jewelry box and never knew that the proof of her grandma Velma's story of it belonging to great grandma Amy was true (and not the dementia talking), was in this photo all along!
Sam S. Sein One thing i notice about people from a century ago and us in 21st century is that people back than seem to be more graceful than us.
Karla Wiltrout Swank GREAT picture! Why is the gentlemen always sitting in these photos? My mother-in-law has a bunch and it's always the same!
Wanda Cromer She was born in Australia; he was born in Kansas. Her folks migrated from Sydney to Victoria, BC in the late 1890s then to Salt Lake City for a while, before settling in Arizona Territory. This wedding took place in Arizona Territory. I think her folks might have been Mormon. Amy and Lemuel migrated to California. They had 4 children.
Wanda Cromer I have several turquoise bracelets that I wear and treasure. I believe turquoise has healing qualities. I spent summers in the 1950s in New Mexico and became enthralled with the Indian tribes. I hope one of my granddaughters will appreciate the turquoise. Amy was quite successful, wasn't she (from what I gleaned from the censuses)?

Robert Miller I've been scanning and restoring my grandfather's collection of photos form the 1850's-1950's. It is such a grand and lovely thing to do, looking back at the long forgotten faces and places of the people who made our world. Here is one I researched via the names written on it's back. They lived in the Port Lorne area of Nova Scotia Canada. Two sisters and a daughter form the 1901 Census. I think my grandfather liked the young daughter as she was around his age.
Bobbie Updegrove Whittenbarger That looks like the wedding gowns brides wore in 1970s! I always wondered why the groom was always seated and the bride standing back then.
Melissa Holt Thank you for all the comments! This photo is of my great great grandparents. He worked in a mine (and I think he owned a mine later), and she was the daughter of a stockman who raised sheep. The bracelet Amy was wearing in this photo is what got me started researching my family history. My mother has the bracelet, and I knew that Amy and Lemuel's daughter Velma (my great grandma) was born in 1910, so the bracelet was at least 100 years old, so I started searching for the date of their marriage. Just thought I'd fill in a few details about it. :)
