Here we find a lovely portrait from August 7, 1960 — the wedding day for Jerry Chapman and Judy DeVoe, nearly 59 years ago.
I gather it was taken in the Chapman home living room? I’ve cropped it closer up — but below you’ll see the original before/after editing of the full-view. I took the liberty of removing the candles from the wall/mantle so Jerry looks a bit less devil-horned. Somebody’s dressy sock and shoe is near the perimeter. There’s a toddler rocking chair that could have been Jerry’s or a family heirloom. There’s a great vintage 1950’s TV set nearby — I can’t quite locate the model.
We’re fortunate (thank you grandpa!) to have under a minute of some 8mm silent video from that day — you’ll see them emerging from Janice street DeVoe house and posing in front of a car — what would the message on the car be?? something about Honey… and Sorry.. . Then you see the Chapman parents and the bridesmaids — and a stroll near the Janice street Chapman house — it all goes by fast.
- Any specific memories about this wedding day?
- What does the wedding car message say in the video?
- What type of tv is that?
- Does the rocking chair have significance?
- Is this the Chapman living room in the photo?
- Where are the (presumed) photos of them standing in front of the car (it looks like they are posing)? — update — found one!
