As I prepare for the Titanic anniversary dinner, I was reminded of some photos I took of my daughter in my great-granny’s wedding dress.  Granny (otherwise known as Ida Elizabeth Browning) was born in 1874 and married in 1913 – the fact that she had children AT ALL at that advanced age (> 39years) surprises me – and she had 3 of them!


Granny was VERY small.  My daughter takes after her a bit.  These photos were taken in 2009.  My cousin has the dress – I wish I lived closer so I could borrow it and put it in a vintage display…

Ida’s daughters – Mary and Carrie

Granny – I think about 1940 or so.
