"Perfectly matched for life" on the door. I hope they they had a wonderful and long one.
Look at the vandalism done to that car!
Nice pic Herb! Old photo's have been slow coming in lately. I love 'em.
Yes Ed. I too find it frustrating not being able to know what happened in their lives

Deciphered from blowing up pic-
"Soft and sweet?" "Very" "Has she got form?, Yes! She has a loving way!
Alan, I'm like you. Every one of these neat old pics that get posted my mind wonders about everything that went on back then. One thing for sure, their life together got started not long before the toughest times this country had seen since the Civil War. Looks like a '23, so they probably had at least one, if not two kids, before the onset of the Great Depression not to mention the "Dirty Thirties". That would've been very tough.
Ed, those are lines from a popular song, "That Certain Party". Not certain, date on a Victor record I have is 1925, song could have been out much earlier.
I'm wondering about the lumber on the running board - ?!?
Looks like a couple of wood frame collapsible cots on the running board. Maybe a road trip with camping for a low cost honeymoon?
I always look at the people in these period images and wonder the same things too. What was the arc of their lives? When did they pass? Still alive? No doubt some family members around today would recognize them. Always more to the story than what we can see. I love examining these images.
Looks like that coupe has a 9 leaf rear spring!
Hasslers on a roadster or coupe will make the rear end stick up like a cat in heat.
