Photograph [Large Wedding Party Outside House]About this object
A black and white photograph of a large wedding party posing outside a house situated at 149 Main Street, Mataura.
As yet unconfirmed, the wedding may be between a Stark and a Balloch, two local families. The house is a lovely example of a villa with two front bay windows and cast-iron porch fretwork.
The dog lying on the footpath looks like he'd rather be one of the wedding party inside the fence.
We would love to be able to confirm the wedding participants and associated information.
The Church in the background behind the house is the original Catholic Church.
