Martha Lewis Marries Emery Holmes

A photo of Martha Lewis and Emery Holmes: Mama and Dad took the train up to Reno and were married on January 8, 1908. They honeymooned at the Riverside Hotel. Mama kept her seamstress job & lived in Sacramento & Dad had a room in Roseville. "July 29th: If Mrs Gill does not come to terms pretty darn quick, we will go to Blue Canyon & live in a tent! What is the difference between a sewing machine & a Kiss? One sews seams nice & the other seems SO nice!" - Emery

I love these old photos. It puts a better image of my grandparents in my mind. All born late 1880s and married around 1908-1910.
