My Grandparents’ Wedding Portrait in COLOR

GrandparentsBecky

Yesterday I received, totally by surprise, the above portrait of my paternal grandparents, John and Amalia “Mollie” (Koleber) Margheim. It’s their wedding portrait from November, 26, 1920. A wonderful gentleman colorized it and shared it with me “In honor of my dear grandparents”, as he stated.

This is the original portrait that I’ve posted in my Picasa web album.

I love the colorized version! I’m grateful to M. Chance for the unexpected, but very welcomed, gift!
