Photo Number 566

This is another photo from the Antique Shop in Park Rapids, Minnesota.
PR Antiques 1911 wedding I think The photographer is W. Rope (Corrected to W.R.Opie) from Langdon, North Dakota.  I could not find any info about the photographer.

I will pick 1911 for the date of this photo, simply because my husbands Great Uncle and Aunt were married in 1911 and their hairstyles and clothing are very similar.

Here is Great Aunt Mae and Great Uncle Franks Wedding photo. June 29th 1911. They had no children, my husband inherited their wedding photograph.  They are not “forgotten”..Frank was a Barber and Mae was a School Teacher. 
June 29 1911 Frank and Mae  nee Abbott Lemon
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

Update from Iggy:

The photographer's name is William R. Opie. He was in Langdon, ND in 1910 according to the US census for that year.
Mr. William Opie is shown as immigrating from England in 1886, living briefly in Ely, MN in 1900 and settling in Langdon by 1910. He's bio is in the "1889-1980 Langdon, ND centenial." He apparently specialized in wedding pictures (imagine that!)
