An archival tidbit for 26 June 2013

Gay wedding ceremony, Philadelphia, ca. 1957. The grooms never got to see the above photograph or any of the twenty other pictures that one of the guests took: the photo shop that processed the film deemed the images inappropriate and never returned them to the customer who dropped off the film. The photos somehow made their way into the collections of the ONE National Gay and Lesbian Archives, which has digitized six of them and made the resulting surrogates available online.
