This is a photo of my step-grandparents, Paul Pettit, and Audria Maxine Brannon, probably around the time of their marriage in 1937.

I saw it when I was up visiting the folks last weekend, and they let me scan a copy with my little Flip-Pal.


Paul died in 1964, and Audria, in 2007. Both are buried in St. Joe Cemetery, just down the road from the Burris homeplace, in Pope County, AR.

This is a Sepia Saturday post.

He looks so tall next to her, and the photographers shadow is in the picture too. It must have been a sunny day but they are warmly dressed with their coats and hats.

Neat photo- and I must get one of those flip-pals!

Imagine their time dancing with the height difference...he sure appears quite tall! Cool photo!

Actually, she was very short. Paul was only about 5'10" - so I hear - and Audrey was probably not quite 5 feet.

This is a great photo. I have family from Arkansas too. Thanks for sharing.

I was surprised to see another couple with such a big height difference.

Oh, I'm sorry he died so much earlier.
I have to check out these flip-pals.

Love the height difference and the lurking shadow. Either he was very very tall or she was very very small. --tattered and lost

Lovely photograph. They are clearly very close. But look at his hat! Magnificent!
