(Not So) wordless Wednesday - Post 128: Lyle and Emily Dressed Up?

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 Carringer family collection handed down by my mother in the 1988 to 2002 time period:

I think that this is a picture of my grandparents, Lyle L. Carringer and Emily K. (Auble) Carringer, locked in an embrace for the camera, although I am not entirely sure of the time or setting, or even if it is them.  It was with their other "couple" pictures, so I think it is them.  I think the photo may have been taken on a beach - that looks like seaweed at the base of the fence.  The time may be after their engagement or wedding in 1918, since Lyle is wearing a wedding ring.

This may have been at a costume party or other event where they dressed up as a cowboy and bar girl or similar - note the fur stole dangling from Emily's side.
