Why all this pondering about one's memory, that great hard disk up in your head? It has been caused by the man who pushes us each and every week ever so gentle to leaf through our photo albums and consult our memories. It is because of Alan, the Sepia Saturday Shoe-box man. He confessed that he always has a bit of a job remembering his wedding anniversary. So this week's theme is 'weddings'. It so happens that I have a (children's) shoe-box full of wedding pictures. Below you see a collage of a selected number of family photo's I found there. I must admit that none is as jaunty as the one selected by Alan but here we go:
Hielke van der Gaast & Catharina Orie, The Hague, 6/29/1932
Matthëus Rutgert Venema & Aaltje Hatzmann, The Hague, 5/11/1954
Andreas Miebies & Lena Bakker, The Hague, 8/15/1913*
Cornelis Franciscus J. Klarholz & Johanna Orie, Loosduinen 12/31/1913**
Engelmundus Maks & Rieka Venema, IJmuiden(?), 5/16/1946
Gerardus Theodorus de Langen & Antje Doelman, The Hague, 12/27/1916

And before I forget, I like to congratulate with their 39th wedding anniversary Isobel and, ahhh, so sorry, can't remember his name.
