If your uncle gave it to your father without saying who was in it could it have been linked to an unknown birth relative ..maybe not even in Australia

Worth posting on the photo forum for more precise dating or with help finding similar photos from facial recognition

Good luck with your search

Hello
Yes I have searched and searched trove and other web sites
I have also asked members of the family much older than me but no one can tell me who they are
my father was one of eight sons born in the 30's and my great grand father married 3 times
I do know it is not my grandparents but it could be their parents or parents I have even tried the photo association on Family search.
Thank you also for your help and ideas

See my posting:



If it's any help, it looks 1920s vintage or possibly early 30s.

PS - Maddy, yep, you're on the mark. Recently, we've had a few come up like this on the photo  board.

Hello

Yes I have  I know who they all are but I dont have photos of everybody looking at Lightfoot, Willbat

Wade Austen, and Cattell  etc
Thank you for your idea

Local newspapers gave very good descriptions of weddings with the dress described in detail and the attendants named as well. I would cross check all family weddings from 1920s and early 1930s with the newspaper descriptions. It is unusual to have one male and two female attendants, so that is one clue.
