REAL PHOTOGRAPH OF a Native American Indian wedding. The subjects of the photo are a beautiful, young, smiling, Native American woman and her Native American World War II soldier groom or husband. I believe she is from the southwest, possibly a pueblo. She is wearing leather leg wrapped boots with black soles, a buckskin dress with lots of long swaying irregular fringe and some bead work on the chest, a loomed beaded head band and a beautiful, long, silver squash blossom Navajo necklace along with other necklaces. Her husband is looking down, he is dressed in his military uniform and has a white carnation buttoned on his jacket. By the time line of the photograph it is unknown if he is already home from the war or getting ready to leave. Hopefully already home safe. The quaint church in the background is complete with a white cross, and period dressed well wishers. Just a very rare and unusual Native American photograph.
CONDITION: Excellent, unused, sadly no names, slight dings on corners, image does not appear to be faded. Subjects and background are in focus and the motion is not blurred. Card has a white border. Please note: The white spots you see in the scanned image do not appear to the eye on the actual card.
