A young man from St. Louis, Missouri...
We think every face tells a story. What was this young man's story?
Maybe he rode into town, looking to open a new haberdashery - he was very fond of pinstripes, and preferred fine elegance to his previous job as a pugilist. He visited a nearby print shop each day while setting up his new store, and noticed the pretty young lady there, who smiled shyly at him whenever he passed her. She was beautiful (see her photo in our next shop listing) and he yearned to talk to her, despite her young age. After months of seeing her there, he finally approached her and instantly fell head over heels in love with her. They started taking walks together through the town streets, talking and laughing. In the midst of summer during one of their walks, he reached over, took her hand in his, and asked her to become his bride. He was already planning which pinstripe suit he would wear to their wedding....
