11/12/2012 5:39 AM Are you sure this picture was taken in Lithuania? I am not an expert in fashion but I do know a little about Jews of Lithuania (being one and exploring my roots). This clothing style looks 1. of a very wealthy family, 2. not Lithuanian style
Of course I could be wrong...
11/13/2012 11:08 AM What a lovely photograph! But not 1870s. Condition is excellent.
Is it a copy? restored?
My guess: Wedding Photograph circa 1900-1910.
The woman on the right has an ornate dress with a Train. (veil?)
The Groom is on her right wearing a white vest.
There is a familial resemblance for the 3 women;
Mother, Bride and younger Daughter?
The two young men in darker vests resemble each other. Brothers?
probably Brothers of the Bride
My grandmother (married 1908) had a similar style dress (wasp waist) in her wedding portrait. Is there anything imprinted on the back of the photo? Good Luck, Anna Reuter, Palo Alto, California
