Today's lovely 1920's bride is posing with what I assume is her maid of honor. This Art Deco photograph is in very poor shape with a number of scratches and flaws (see bottom photo below). The woman on the left has a black mark on her nose, but from their facial features and the shape of their mouths I suspect they were sisters. This young bride was truly an ethereal and exquisite vision. She appears so serene and is wearing a lovely white gown with the most beautiful headdress. She is holding a large bouquet of white roses. One thing I always find interesting and have seen before; she is wearing white heeled shoes, her maid of honor is wearing very serviceable black shoes.

The photographer was the Liberty Studio at, 223 Milwaukee Ave., Chicago. I did not find any information on this studio, but perhaps another of the many ethnic photography studios along the Milwaukee Avenue corridor which included a large Polish population.
