  1. Ladies permanently in black, even for a wedding. There was always someone to mourn. P.

  2. Marvellous !!
    I notice the benches bahind them, presumably for the celebrations.

    As Pauline said, the ladies always seemed to wear black for something formal.

  4. I think she is wearing black because she is a serious business woman and black is practical and always in fashion. Even if we are in la France profonde, remember it's 1939, and we are post Coco Chanel.

  5. What a great record of your home's history to have in your possession.
