Photo Number 1939

This is a photo that I purchased at a garage sale near Grand Rapids Minnesota.

He is wearing a suit and she is wearing a dress with a slightly dropped waist.  The dress is a light color.  They are both wearing flower corsages and she is holding something covered in tulle…perhaps with a few flowers.  I can see his wedding band but not hers.
I will guess that this is a photo from the late 1920’s or early 1930’s.

Thanks for stopping by.
Update from Iggy:

Bertha and "Cap" were married September 26, 1923 in Iowa.  They moved to Clear Lake South Dakota.  Bertha was born 1905 and died in 2008 at the age of 103.  Casper was born in 1897 and died in 1974.  They had seven children, 


  1. I think Find A Grave Memorial# 65447021 and Find A Grave Memorial# 27865261 are them. One memorial shows the family and the other has an extensive obituary (Bertha lived to be 103!)

  2. In the morning I will mail out a copy of this blog to Gary in Minnesota. I believe he is a grandson of Cap and Berthas. His Mom was Lena one of Casper and Bertha's children.

  3. Oh, wonderful! It's about time for another Full Circle! ;)
