Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

This is Minnie Dwyer and her husband John. Minnie was Benedicta’s sister, and was previously featured in this photo of four of the sisters in their hats. The couple seem to have flowers – he with a boutonniere and she with some type of bouquet or corsage. This may be a snapshot from a wedding.

    That is an interesting photo! I love how you can see her lipstick and his cigar in his hand.

    Is that a mini-horseshoe (bolo tie?) he is wearing instead of a silk tie?

    It looks like a horseshoe pin on a white tie. Good observation. I believe Dwyer is an Irish name, right?


  3. I wonder what they called that bunch of flowers that was just pinned to the front of your blouse..certainly there is a name for it..I have seen it before..it looks strange just kind of hanging there.. I wonder if they were attendants at a wedding instead of the bride and groom..he seems more formally dressed than she? :)
