My Paternal Grandparents

This is one of the few photos I have of my father’s mother and father, Ira Jewel Lanier Holley and Ocie Lee Holley. The story behind this picture is that in the original photo, there are 3 couples side by side. That’s because people were poor and for economy, wedding photos were grouped, maybe not on everyone’s actual wedding day. A few decades back before everything became digital, I worked with a San Francisco photolab using last-generation techniques to create a vignette of just my grandparents with sepia toning. I then had copies printed and mailed this “new” image to family members.
