Thank you to my second-cousin-one time-removed for sharing this photo on Facebook. Oscar Giddens was the much younger half-brother of my great-grandfather, Charles Giddens. 

This photo was taken on July 15, 1919. The next year, Oscar and his wife are found living with his wife's family at 58 Ranney Street. The Shook family lived nearby on Main Street and bridesmaid, Mildred Gressler Baumbergin, lived with her new husband in her parents home on Woodbridge Avenue.
