Family Treasures: A “Before & After” picture

I wanted to share this “before & after” picture I fixed up and created in Photoshop. The happy couple is Lucille McCormack and Fred Crozier. They would be married but I don’t know if this picture was taken before or after the marriage. I am guessing that this picture was taken near Lucille’s home of Ithaca, Michigan. But that is only speculation at this time.

I am guessing, again, that this picture might have been taken in the early 1920s. Lucille and Fred were married in Ithaca, Michigan in June 1920.[2] Lucille was my first cousin twice removed. Her father was (Thomas) Henry McCormack. He was a younger brother of my great-grandfather, William E. McCormack.

I would like to thank my cousin Lance for the original on the left.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you learned something!
