Spring has sprung and love is in the air this #WeddingWednesday.

This item is part of Hagley Library's collection of Thomas C. Marshall photographs (Acc. 1990.270). The family's patriarch, Israel W. Marshall (1850-1911), founded the Marshall Brothers Paper Mill in Yorklyn in 1890. The wealth generated by this family business allowed his son,Thomas Clarence Marshall (1885-1969), to become a man of many hobbies, including photography.
In addition to other subjects, the Hagley's collection of his photographs contains images like this one, documenting the Marshall family and their friends. Other subjects include photographs of the family home, the Marshall Brothers Paper Mill, Marshall's collection of Stanley Steamer automobiles, and various locations and events in and around Delaware and Chester County, Pennsylvania.
