Couple on a Courting Bench


Another restoration of an old family photo, unfortunately, I haven’t a clue as to who they are. Since the handsome fella makes an appearance in several photos that I have, I’m assuming he is a relative. It could be an engagement photo, since the couple is posed on a Victorian courting bench. Courting benches let a couple sit together, just not too close! Judging from the style of the man’s shirt, which looks like a J.C. Leyendecker ad for Arrow shirts, I’m guessing it was taken in the early teens. Scan of the original photo behind the cut.
