Collection of Wedding Invitations

I found some old wedding invitations earlier this week that my Great Grandparents Elizabeth Croal & William Gow had received in the early 1900s. They are still in quite good condition which is wonderful as they are over 100 years old. I think I would like to do some research on the families to see if there are any descendants. It might be interesting for them to know that we still have an invitation to their ancestors wedding.

Wedding of Mary Walder & David Croal,
my Great Grandmother's cousin.
19th August 1911
I believe the next three brides were all sisters...

Wedding of Mabel Jessie Rogers & Harold Brain
23rd December 1908
Wedding of Clarice Rogers & Norman Sharp
23rd November 1910
Wedding of Ethel Rogers & Charles Wiley
1st September 1909
The next two brides as well...

Wedding of Jessie Douglas Lindsay & William Evans
10th January 1906
Wedding of Roberta Agnes Lindsay & Henry Johnson
15th March 1911
Wedding of Ada Lawrence Pepper & A. B. Jung
5th June 1907
An invitation for the Lindsay family requesting their presence at the wedding of my Great Grandparents on December 14th, 1904.

Just beautiful!
