(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 163: Lyle and Emily Wedding Photo

...
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
1988-2002 time period:


This is a photograph of my grandparents, Emily Kemp Auble (born 1899) and Lyle Lawrence Carringer (born 1891) before their marriage on 19 June 1918 in San Diego, California.  This may have been their wedding photograph - I have not found a formal wedding photograph in the Carringer/Seaver treasure box.

I have a sepia-color photograph of this image in a framed picture on my ancestors wall in the hallway.  I scanned the image above from the Bessie Pentecost photo album last month. 

I was interested in what the "badge" on Lyle's Marine uniform said, figuring it would be his name.  It isn't, it says "Marksman," which was a surprise to me.

Love the wedding photo. I am glad your Wordless Wednesdays are not so wordless, because it gives us permission to do the same. I always look forward to your posts.
