LC  SC Graham of Elkhorn Wis. was the photographer.
This CdV is most likely from the 1870’s.

  1. That fancy script makes my eyes blurry. I couldn't find any mention of an L C Graham... It might be an S or even an I... but either way, I couldn't find the dude.

    The couple does seem to have big hands.

  2. Elkhorn is about an hour southwest of Milwaukee. I used to work in the public library there. Maybe the historical society would be able to help or would like the photograph. http://www.elkhornhistory.org/

    You see it is S. C. Graham - but I am still at a loss for who he/she was...

  5. Those two look worried, not happy. More like a pose for a hospital waiting room than a wedding. Who knows? Maybe they are simply following the photographer's instructions for keeping their hands still.

  6. The "Wisconsin photographers Index 1840-1976" shows an entry on page 95:

    GRAHAM, S. C.; in the place of Beaver Dam, Dodge County; dates active 1874-1878; birthplace ??;

    Dodge County seems not to be that far away north of Walworth County, where the city of Elkorn is located at.
