Janice, this reminds me of so many of my photos taken during that era. Everybody is so formal. I guess it was not appropriate to do any thing else, and maybe the exposure was so slow that was all they could do.

That chair is unique! I don't think I've ever seen one quite like it. (Please, so not allow me into an antique store with Victorian Era furniture!!)

Is that both of their hats on the floor? His vest is great (I'm a vest man). Otis' hands sure do have character.

What a lovely couple. This picture is a real treasure.

I didn't even notice the hats. You guys are good at details. I love walking through antiques also. I can't collect any more stuff. Time to start getting rid of stuff. Prentist or Prentis was my mother's aunt. My mother is Letha Prentist. I think the name comes from the surname Prentice/Prentiss. My mother's father died when she was 5 so I didn't see him either.

Well Prentist sure is pretty! And such a tiny waist, which was the rage back in the day. Otis was a lucky man. I'm sorry he lost her so early.
