Photo Number 223

This young couple was apparently from the Hibbing, Minnesota area.  I did some research on the photographer, Paul N. Aubin, he is listed as a photographer from 1922 to 1926 in Hibbing.  I think he was probably there longer than that, the double breasted suit  was popular from the 1930's to the 1950's.  From the folder that this photo is in I will guess that it was taken sometime in the 1940's.  The bride appears to have  tiny orchids in her corsage.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)


  1. That is a lovely corsage. When I enlarged, I noticed how unique his lapels are.

  2. He is a, as they say, "dashing" handsome dude. And she looks really nice too. Did couples get portraits for any particular reason "back when this was taken"?

  3. I was thinking they looked more like the parents of the bride/groom, and not the actual participants. This looks to me like a 40s/50s photo.

  4. Intense Guy, Weddings and Graduations we are time that you went into the Photographers Studio and had your photo taken. It was almost always an occasion!

    In Minnesota, this would have been a very common wedding photo in the 1940's. They got out their best clothing, bought some flowers and got married! :)

  5. What a nice looking couple. I am wondering if this is perhaps an anniversary picture? It seems they are older and if you look closely at the woman's ring finger, it almost appears as if she has tan lines, with a white circle appearing where the ring should be and the ring having slipped down on the finger a bit. Of course, the marking could have been made by another ring, as well, and with the ring being so loose, it could indicate that this was a newer ring that hadn't been fitted.
