Granny's Teens Era Wedding Dress

As I prepare for the Titanic anniversary dinner, I was reminded of some photos I took of my daughter in my great-granny's wedding dress.  Granny (otherwise known as Ida Elizabeth Browning) was born in 1874 and married in 1913 - the fact that she had children AT ALL at that advanced age (> 39years) surprises me - and she had 3 of them!


Granny was VERY small.  My daughter takes after her a bit.  These photos were taken in 2009.  My cousin has the dress - I wish I lived closer so I could borrow it and put it in a vintage display...
Ida's daughters - Mary and Carrie

Granny - I think about 1940 or so.
