Very stately dress on an important day! It's a shame that more formal dress isn't worn these days

Your mother sure was a beauty. Being an ignorant I have to ask, what is attached to the left arm of your uncle? Something related to the first communion ceremony?

These old photos are true treasures. Is this one on the pasteboard type backing. The ones I have areas old they are all on it. This one is beautiful, and your mother’s dress is so pretty. What a lovely picture.

What a treasure to be cherished!
BTW Ralph, first communion dresses are still traditional in style, and boys wear suits, white shirts and ties.
