(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 137: Lyle and Emily Smiling

I'm posting family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they won't be Wordless Wednesday posts like others do - I simply am incapable of having a wordless post.

Here is a photograph from the Seaver//Carringer family collection handed down by my mother in the 1988 to 2002 time period:

This photo is of my grandparents, Emily Kemp Auble and Lyle Lawrence Carringer, probably around the time of their wedding on 19 June 1918.  I wonder if this is their wedding picture?  I don't have one.  They are both smiling - which was rare for them to do in pictures.

I think the setting is the Carringer house at 2105 30th Street in San Diego - the details of the window on the house on the left side of the picture look familiar to me, and so does the the background on the right.  That is not a cross in back of Lyle and Emily - I think it was a ladder of sorts that Lyle used to climb up to the second story of the house - I believe he slept upstairs (both inside and outside) while he was a young man.
