Peeks From The Past



Mock Wedding
(as recalled by Clara Doyle (nee Gerwing)

  The somewhat fuzzy photo on the left was taken in about 1938 on the Joseph Gerwing farm near Lake Lenore Saskatchewan. I am depicted as the "groom". The "bride" outfitted in my mother's wedding dress, is my sister Theresia Carson (nee Gerwing) 

The reason for the photo was that my mother Anna Gerwing (nee Gessner) often remarked that she & Pa ( Joseph Gerwing Sr.) never had  "proper" wedding photos taken when they married in 1916.  The photo provides proof that even in the difficult times of the 1930's, kids liked to have fun!
