 Sometimes you come across things that just make you scratch your head and think of how things where in a different time.  This old framed wedding photo is surely one of those things.  This photo is part of an estate I'm working for.  They have one of the most unique collection of authentic antique photographs and items I've ever seen.  This was hung on a wall in an old carriage house.  When we took it off the wall, there was a definite area of the wall where you could see this had been hung for a good many years.  Fortunately it was on a wall that had no direct sunlight hitting it.  The glass and frame where very dirty.  You could hardly see the picture.  We took all the framed pictures, photos, and painting to a professional conservator and had them cleaned and check out. He said this one was in very good condition and was fortunate that it was hung where it was, and received no direct sunlight.  We where told that this photo was matted and framed more than 100 years ago.  We had the photo, glass, and frame cleaned and it's ready to put up on display.  The photo measures 20"w x 16"h.  The frame shows some wear, but the picture is in excellent condition.  This was likely a real wedding photo that company of Knaffl & Bro got a hold of and titled it and put the signs on the wall.  I would find it hard to believe the reverend was so ignorant he couldn't write or spell any better than what the signs on the wall say.  I guess back in the day this was funny.  I think it's a great piece of  Black Americana history.  I really do like the subject matter.  The grooms face is priceless.  If you just look at the picture it will surely bring a smile to your face and fill you with some of there joy.  The photo is very clear, crisp, and sharp.  I've seen one of these once before, and it wasn't in as good of condition, and it brought $500.00.  I've also seen this photo turned into postcard.  Very few of these original copies exist.  I've taken lots of pictures.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.  Thanks for stopping and good luck shopping.  Michael J.
