I got this snapshot from one of the Great Big Photo Albums of People Related to Me but, unlike most of the other photo albums, this one was chock full of familiar faces.

In this photo, weighing all of 98 pounds and swinging a solid-steel iron like nobody’s business, Cleo Mary Melchoir, who had this very day taken the name Bach and seemed to be getting into the spirit of the whole marriage thing without any trouble.

On the right, attempting to defend himself with a cast-iron wok and realizing with a grin how futile it was, Frederic Charles Bach.

Ladies and gentlemen, meet my grandmother and grandfather, newly married on this day, August 26, 1935.
