Title
Amal Dos' wedding in Cairo, 1954
Description
This photograph shows the wedding of George Harb's maternal cousin Amal Dos and her groom George (from Lebanon) in Egypt on 4 September 1954. George Harb’s brother Albert is positioned to the groom’s right.

The time period is indicated by style of dress popular in the mid and late 1950s; for women a tight bodice that pulls in the waist and meets a full skirt. For men, suits often dropped straight to the hip hitting around mid-thigh. Most suits were single-breasted with long, wide lapels, and fastened up the front with two or three buttons sitting low, exposing a long necktie and usually no waistcoat.
