A Bell and Beau Couple: My Great-Grandparents

The above picture is a picture of one of my great-grandparents. I don't know too much about this photograph, and I'm not sure exactly where and when it was taken. From what I can remember, there was nothing written on the back to tell me. I only have a digital copy, so I can't take a look again. (My grandma owns the original.)

My guess of where and when this photo was taken? I'm guessing the photo was taken in the 1910s. At least the clothing and hats appear to be from that time period. (For some reason, I thought 1915, but I can't remember why I thought that.) From looking at the hats, it appears to be summer time, and it appears as though the wind is blowing since they are holding onto their hats. As I stated before, I don't know where this picture was taken. My first guess would be Michigan as they lived in Michigan, and it could be anywhere on the coasts of that state. For some reason I guessed it could have been taken in Muskegon, but I don't remember why. Or it could have been taken in Detroit across from Bell Isle. Of course, I could be wrong. The picture could have been taken anywhere, and not necessarily in Michigan.

Either way, I chose this picture of my great-grandparents (a different couple from the one I previously wrote about) because I believe they fit the Belles and Beaus category the best. I think their marriage was a real love story. I might post on it some day.
