I am guessing these are all your grandparents - for some reason your granddaddy on your - um - mom's (?) side is missing.

Based on the facial features, the photo of relatives - the genes tell all.

I would guess the first photo is a weding picture taken about 1920's by the dress. Second photo is from the same time period, but is taken about when the lady was about 21.

First photo: the bride's shoes make me think this could have been during the 1920's.

Second photo: this is going to drive me crazy until you're allowed to tell what you know. It looks like a tintype to me!

Vito, you need to look at and read the kind of history books that are rarely, if ever, part of a school's curriculum. Social history of all kinds, books on the culture of various lands. This is where real history lies. Historical facts are created by men and women who are at least partly a product of the place and time in which they live.

Boy, the more I look at this, the more I see Rod is right. Are you sure, M'Lady40, that that's not you in a portrait done in black and white?

The 1st definately roaring 20's by hairdo's and fashion. Shoes on bride give it away. Too much leg for earlier,. I get the impression the man is not comfortable in the suit. Could be borrowed or just not used to wearing it.

2nd photo woman is not married, no wedding ring! It just looks earlier than the other. The dress and hair look Victorian era.
