(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 129: Lyle and Emily in Love

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:

This is a photograph of my grandparents, Emily Kemp Auble (1899-1977) and Lyle Lawrence Carringer (1891-1976) taken in 1918, probably before their wedding on 19 June 1918.  Lyle was in the Maine corps at the time stationed in San Diego, and he may be in his uniform in this photo.  Emily is wearing a long dress and has a headband low on her forehead.

The happiness on their faces is obvious, isn't it?  Little did they know what the life together would bring over the next 58 years.

I don't recognize the setting for this photograph.  It may be at either the Carringer home at 2105 30th Street, the Auble home (I'm not sure where that was in 1918) or a public place.
