I should look up the date of this one.  William Charles Bell & Mable Rixon Wedding photo.  The flowers in the bouquet are what catch my attention, an amazing display.  That photo must have been expensive for it's day, but well worth it.

Mable Rixon Bell
    I was told this was taken before she was married.  Glorious hat.  Aunt Gwen told me in her later life she had to have one of her ovaries taken, she thought maybe cancer.  But the doctor's told her that she would never be able to have girl babys because the ovary they took only produced girls.  Imagine their surpise when she had two more daughter. Audry and Marie.
Oh, there's more

William Charles & Mable Rixon Bell
  My Grandparents from Australia.  I was cleaning the old office into the new office and found this old photos,  There's a few more, and I'll add them later and I get them scan, cleaned up and ready. (Thanks Joe for teaching me how to hide scratches in photos).  Maybe as I'll clean more, I'll find more of their story.  Don't know if I can gather all the bits & pieces I heard to make a co-adhesive story. He was a milk man at one time. She died of cancer. Aunt Gwen once told me "Oh who knows what killed her, it was 1948 and out-back Australia.  I have a photo of the family in front of their house that want on pilings because when it rains in Australia, it REALLY rains..  The photo show the house 5 or 6 feet off the ground, but mother said she remembered opening at trap door in the floor to get a bucket of water.  Thank goodness for the edit mode.
