This vintage photograph features a couple posing for their portrait at the studio of E. W. Glazer in Lyons, Kansas. The bride is wearing a pretty two tone gown and holding a bouquet of flowers. The groom is sitting in a wicker chair and wearing a dark suit with a corsage. The reverse of the photograph has the inscription “Otto P.”.  One can assume that this name belonged to the groom seen in the photograph. The photographer, Elijah W. Glaze was born in 1864 in New York. “Wilson’s Photographic Magazine (1898)” reported on Glaze winning an award for his work at the Kansas Photographers Convention. The “Bulletin of Photography (1913) announced that the Glaze Photography studio had ben taken over by W. D. Jones.
