Z300 – Airton/Hardwick Wedding, 1927.
Airton/Hardwick Wedding – 1927
From left to right are: Frank Airton, Elsie Airton, the groom Richard Airton, the bride Louie Hardwick, Walter Airton, Herman Hardwick (uncle), Cissie Hardwick.
The small bridesmaid was Muriel Hardwick, now Kirkbright.
A wonderful time capsule of 1920s fashion, the ladies wear cloche hats, handkerchief point hems on their dresses and button shoes, their bouquets are lavish in size.
The men have “spats” (spatter guards) on their shoes.
Sylvia Airton: Elsie was my husband’s aunt but the name has been spelt incorrect it should be AIRTON. It is ten years since Ron died, and I have been working on the family tree for over 20 years, so I will look up Marilla Airton’s name the next time I go on line to see if you Terrence are related. A Member of the Airton family who lives in Dorset has done a one name family tree you might be able to find it on line, he is related to our family but way back 3 generations.
Shirley Perrin: What a beautiful young woman! Such treasure!:)
Terrence Broomfield: My Gran was called Marilla Aireton from Yeadon, married Joseph Wilson. I wonder if we are related?
Thanks Carlo! You already have an earlier photo of Elsie in your archives – she’s in the photo you have of Hudsons Yard.
Thanks for sharing.
