Love on Wheels

When I first mentioned the Crystal Roller Rink, I never dreamed I'd someday have photographic evidence of the wedding that (people tell me) took place there.

See 006 for verso.

On the back of that first photo, someone has jotted down what I think is the groom's name, Davy Smyth (pronounced with a long i).

Verso of 005

I could not get any additional information, such as the bride's name or the date of the wedding, from the usual on-line sources.

Update: Thanks to the kindness of relatives/descendants of this happy couple, I have learned that the wedding of David Smythe and Margaret Yager took place on December 18, 1948.

I cannot imagine wearing a long dress and roller skates! It's charming that everyone in the pics had skates on (exc. the older woman by the cake)...what a fun party it must have been!
