My maternal grandparents, Mim & Bobby, just married. Exact date unknown, but a wartime wedding, for sure.
There is a third photo in this series, where Bobby kisses Nan, and it's fabulous, but I have turned the house upside down and cannot find it. So you'll just have to imagine that bit.
Nan's parents are on her side, but I'm not sure who's on Bobby's, and there's no one left to ask. Whoever they are, I hope we're related; that man sporting the waistcoat is Decidedly Handsome.
This falls under the heading of A Difficult Marriage. I have the marriage certificate somewhere, which has been ripped clean in half, and then carefully stuck back together, which pretty much says it all. But they look happy and hopeful here, which is why I like this series so much. I love Nan's hyperflexed legs, which have carried on through three generations, as have Bobby's eyes. Not his ears, though, which is probably a Good Thing.
And here is another photo of them from around the same time, also a favourite of mine. Bobby and Nan, walking out on Princes' Bridge, instantly recognisable to any Melbournian. The view is hard north, straight up Swanston Street, showing St Paul's Cathedral and the Nicholas Building.
How cool are those cars, 'ey?
