Photo Number 1264

This is a photo from the antique shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.

couple and a car two DL Antiques

A couple on their wedding day in the 1940’s.   I am not sure what kind of car is in the background.  During the war years 1941 to 1945 many weddings were simple and spur of the moment before a soldier shipped out.

I tried to read the license plate with no luck.  This was a photo taken by someone who developed their own film, there were two photos and the other is the reversed image of this one.

The bride wears a huge corsage on her below the knee length dress.  The groom wears a suit and tie with a boutonniere.

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)


  1. I'm not 100% sure of the car either - the 1937-9-ish Plymouth sedans looked a lot like this - but with the rear only angle - its hard to tell for sure!

    I think the plate says:
    429 154
    Land of 10,000 Lakes

    ...I wonder who counted them all...
