Name of creator
Agnes Margaret Rife of St. Paul, Minnesota married Gordon Clarke Hall, then a lieutenant in the Canadian army, on June 26, 1944 at Knox United Church in Regina, Saskatchewan. They were unable to get married at Agnes' home in St. Paul due to a polio epidemic then raging in the United States. Consequently, Canadian servicemen were forbidden to travel there. The wedding took place in Regina because it was the home of Agnes' maternal grandmother. A reception at the Hotel Saskatchewan followed the ceremony. Agnes Hall now lives in Winnipeg.
Agnes Hall donated the photographs, along with her wedding dress, to the Dugald Costume Museum in 1988.
Scope and content
The five snapshots depict the bride and groom on the steps of the church; the bride's attendants on the steps of the church; the bride and groom signing the register; the receiving line at the reception with the buffet table in the foreground; and the bride and groom cutting the cake at the reception. All the photographs were taken on the day of the wedding, June 26, 1944. The groom wore his Canadian army uniform.
