Name of creator
Hyma Helen Newland, grand-mother of the donor, was married on May 14, 1914 to W. S. Johnston at St. George's (English) Church in Mon Bijou Park, Berlin. She wore a satin wedding dress and a wedding scarf of Irish Lace which was 80 years old when it was given to her to wear for her wedding. Her daughter, Caryl Patricia Johnston wore a dress made from Nottingham lace when she married Robert C. Haimes at Skipton, Yorkshire, England on September 4, 1945. Hyma Helen Newland's original satin wedding dress was also worn by her grand-daughter, Catherine Haimes on the occasion of her marriage. It is assumed that the Johnston family had a connection with Ireland as, in addition to the Irish lace, the family also received an heirloom Christening Robe from the Jury family of Black Rock.
The images described here were donated to the Costume Museum by Catherine (Haimes) Line in 1998 along with the wedding gowns featured in the photographs.
Scope and content
Items consist of photographic images featuring Hyma Helen Newland, Caryl Patricia Johnston, and (presumably) Catherine Haimes on the occasion of their marriages. Also found here is a photograph of Georgina M. Jury, from whom the donor's grandfather, W. S. Johnston, received a family Christening Robe (also donated to the Costume Museum in 1998).
