1940s wedding dresses

I finally got around to some more framing and hanging today. The one on the left is a photo of Neil's parents in the 1940s; then an oil portrait of my great great grandmother, Mary Bancroft Mack, circa 1840. The bottom photo is of Neil as a young lad, dressed up for some occasion, maybe a bar mitzvah or wedding. Click to enlarge. The detail on the portrait is quite amazing, especially given its vintage. It was in Florida when the house burned down in 2009. Click on it to enlarge and you'll see what I mean. 1940s wedding dresses
