This is another sepia photograph. This one is from the antique shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.
Foreign Wedding photo Chambers Yorkcouple DL
The photographer is Chambers from York.  Possibly York Pennsylvania. edited to York Nebraska.  I thought at first this might be a foreign photo..I am not so sure of that now.

The bride wears a V necked gown embellished in beaded designs.  Her hair is wavy and she has a cross necklace.  The groom wears one of those detachable collars with his striped shirt and a black tie with his dark suit.
This photo is probably from the 1920’s.
Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)


  1. I believe the photographer was Ormill M. Chambers of York, Nebraska. :)

    He was born on 1 March 1878 and died 30 Nov 1948.

    1. Excuse me. Typo'ed. The gent's name was Oremill M Chambers.

  2. Oremill M Chambers was my Great Grand Father. Curious does the back of the photo have a stamp showing Chambers Studio? He was a very successful portrait photographer, and supported his family during the depression years.... tough to do. He retired in 1945 and my mom worked int he studio as a child.
