Caroline Blomfield’s photo captures part of history. It was taken in England, 1902. Her mother-in-law, Gladys, is the little girl on the ground in the front. She was the little bridesmaid. Notice that she, too, wore a large hat. Her brother, Cecil, was the bridegroom. He was in Britain’s Indian Army. Caroline adds an interesting fact about Cecil. She writes, UncleCecil was at OUR wedding in 1960, by then an old gentleman of 86! Shortly afterwards, he headed off for a holiday in Brazil and died somewhere up the Amazon. Just the sort of way he would have wanted to go!”
