However, the mannequins on pedestals, and their 1920's style clothes and hairdo reminded me of a Sepia photo of my grandmother's sister and my grandfather's brother.
On closer inspection of the Oh la la etalage, the reflection of the trees and landscape sealed my decision to Show and Tell their Sisters to Brothers marriage story.
That sounds kinda incestuous, huh? So hang with me and I'll sort it out for you. Here goes. My grandmother Stella had a younger sister Mary Ella. My grandfather Chappo had a younger brother Cobb. Mary Ella married her sister's husbands brother and Cobb married his brother's wife's sister. Got it?
That made Mary Ella and Cobb my Dad's Double Aunt and Uncle and all their children Double Cousins who looked more like siblings.
Double Cousin Servicemen about 1946
Navy son of Chappo and Stella.....Air Force son of Cobb and Mary Ella
