Try to find the spot where the photographer was standing.
Ah!the tradition of ugly bridsmaids dresses starts.
[http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] Well, those large bouquets manage to hide a fair amount of the dresses!
Love it fabulous expressions do you think someone told them not to smile.??
They are all mentally counting the bridesmaid dresses that are stacking up in the back of their closet. There is the fluffy pink one, that sickly green one . . .
bella foto :D
A Very old Photo? Yes. They Look Beautiful. Nice Serious Poses. Nice Place, Too.
I think this is a lovely wedding image...
the bouquets are large but so lovely...
the dresses seem to be very beautiful
considering the year... a lovely vintage photo!!!
I'd love to know what colour they were .... the overlay looks as if it might shimmer.
[http://www.flickr.com/photos/hockadilly] I'm thinking silver...
I wonder were people considered mad if they smiled in photographs pre 1970...
Think back, there you are posing, while the photographer has the camera on a tripod, head under the black cloth, taking forever to fix the lens etc. Would you want to smile after all that waiting?
A point well made Mary.

Browsing the nli archive for Poer related stuff, I see this:
Gurteen-le-Poer , Clonmel, on the OS 25" historical map.
You can see an image of this doorway halfway down this page.
Quite the place . . . it photographed beautifully in black and white.
