Here is our final Aunt Delphine photographic reminiscence, focusing especially on the happiest occasions, weddings.


Delphine’s Wedding Photograph – I believe 1938. In this photo Aunt Grizelda and Aunt Alicia are Bridesmaids. Uncle Polky, a Groomsman, is on the far right. Also in the photo, as Bridesmaids, are Jean Wells, Christine Love, Katherine Mahaffey and Judy Walsh. Eddy Walsh stands behind Katherine Mahaffey, both second from the left. A particularly beautiful picture of Delphine with her new husband Uncle Cal.
