Perhaps the 2nd was during the depression and they couldn't afford a wedding ring, or maybe she was still single

I thought the depression ended up traveling 'round the world. No? (History isn't precisely my strong point.) Nevertheless, the clothing and hairstyle plus the look of the photo itself speak of an era quite a bit before the 1930's.

You are correct Barbara, however it affected countries differently. If it is Aus. they were very rural and affected to a lesser degree. The reason I said it was to remind people the Usa is not the world and to look at it internationally. The hair and dress are the main clues. I just observed the abscence of a ring.

Not just a very good point, Rick, but also a vital one.

photo one. My fathers parents on wedding day July 1st 1930. Albert was 26 and Violet was 21. Albert unfortunatly died aged 44, he had heart attack as he walked out the door for work one morning, this happened in front of my dad who was 15. Violet passed away in 1990 aged 81, they had five children. I only ever met my grandmothers on both sides as my Grandfathers died before I ever had a chance to meet them. Im told I look a lot like my grandmother Violet.


Photo two. My husbands maternal grandmother "Willamena grace" Australia around 1918 when she was still single. She married soon after and had four daughters and three sons. She died sometime in the 1960s

By the way the photo of my grandparents wedding was in Portsmouth in England where my parents met and married as well.

By the way, I seem to have made a mistake with the date on Willamena, it is more like 1900 to 1905 NOT 1918. We are not too sure on hubs family photo dates.
