Wedding portrait of Albert Dos and Madelaine Harb, c.1950


Wedding portrait of Albert Dos and Madelaine Harb, c.1950
The photograph is a wedding portrait of Albert Dos and Madelaine Harb (both cousins of George on his father’s side). This image was taken around the 1950s, as indicated by style of dress: Madeleine wears a tight bodice that pulls in the waist and meets a full skirt. Her hairstyle would have been very on trend for the period. The brushed under bob was a popular style that was often worn sleek and smooth, sometimes with a slight wave at the front. The ends of the hair were always turned under in a soft roll.

Alberts suit is also indicative of popular 1950s style. Suits in the 1950s 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. Pocket squares were also popular, as worn by Albert in the photograph above.
