Looks like the groom (back seat T on the right) is having second thoughts....
Robert, Either that or a bad case of Hemorrhoids.
In June of 1950 he re-discovered this photo and exclaimed, "Look, my old Ford!"
An all-around well-composed and interesting photo. Bride and groom are the center of attention. Three of the ladies are smiling, not bad for 1910. Pensive groom makes one wonder what's on his mind. Chauffeur on the right looks relaxed wearing gauntlets and (maybe) puffing on a cigar. Best of all, the period outfits are great. Not to forget, that's a good-looking pair of Model T's. Thanks, Jay.
Windshields are not the same, Bob
Jay you always have great vintage photo's and I'm amazed for the most part how clear they are for their time period. The things I like about them is the detail and questions that arise from them. I noticed, though I'm sure an optical illusion based on depth perception, that the car on the left seems to sit lower, this may be due to the me sized gentleman in the back. The car on the right appears to have Brown sidelights and headlights, the traditional looking double twist Rubes horn and a Corcoran or Brown generator. The car on the right looks to have E&J sidelights but maybe 6 hole Corcoran headlights and the earlier version of the Rubes double twist horn, I really can't see the generator. I also noticed that the windshields are different. I can't tell the makes though I'm sure neither are Metzger, maybe Rand? To me the pictures you post test my knowledge, reminds me the lack there of and how unique each car was despite standardization of the drivetrain. Thanks Jay ever so much.
I think it is a shotgun wedding, the groom looks pregnant ?
Gee Wizz I for one would like to know how that marriage went and their life story. Possibly WW1 had some influence on them all and what about the cars? Where did they end up...

I don't know if the groom is having second thoughts, but I'm sure he's having second helpings!
What is the deal with the gauntlet's? It is obviously warm as seen by the dress of everyone. Was he afraid his hands would get cold hanging on to the steering wheel? I have a pair like them from my grandfather and always thought they were for winter use.
I think the gauntlets and the hat are just badges used to establish as fact that he knows more about that Ford and automobiles in general than anyone else present.
The guy with the gauntlets is the local Vet and he's headed out to deliver a calf, as soon as they pop the beer keg.
