There is something about the faces of this attractive Edwardian couple that really pulls you in as they gaze off into the distance. The photographer posed them with the husband sitting on a wicker chair and his wife seated on the arm. Both are wearing wedding rings, his is more prominently exposed. The woman is wearing a Gibson Girl hairstyle and her dress is exquisite. Her dress has a high neckline, and long sleeves with large buttons down the sides of the sleeves and on the bodice. The bodice also has an inset of what appears to be a light-colored satin and outlined with an unusual trim that continues down to her very trim waist.
This photo itself measures about 4" x 5 1/2" and is set in a cream-colored photo card which was cut down, most likely to fit into an album. There is a photographer's name engraved at the bottom, but I cannot make out the name. I believe it is "De------ Studio, but that is little help as there is no city listed. The photo has a number of black spots, but they do not diminish the elegance of the subjects. I am not certain, but believe the photo to be dated about 1910 - 1912.
