WEDDINGS: Vintage People on Photo Postcards


WEDDINGS: Vintage People on Photo Postcards

TOM PHILLIPS    Book Number: 87217    Product format: Hardback

A wonderfully touching collection of smiling faces, loving friends and relations, and lives blossoming on wedding days mostly from throughout the 20th century. Wedding bells must have been sweet music to a local photographer's ears. The period covered by these wonderful postcards began with the advent of the Box Brownie. All the cards in this huge collection from the Bodleian Library Oxford are taken directly from glass or film negatives, reduced to 75% of actual size. Beautiful white and ivory silk gowns, bonnets and hats, bridesmaids, brides and grooms leaving the church, some top hatted, in military uniform, one or two hand coloured, but mostly sepia and of the finest quality. Captioned where possible, mostly two postcards per page, as we are transported back to special moments captured in an instant. On pages 102 onwards is a series of children's mock weddings followed by females dressed as males. 112pp.
