Description:The couple has been portrayed in front of a painted canvas backdrop depicting a park. Both of them are resting one of their hands on a parapet; the man has placed his on two books, while the woman is holding a pair of gloves in hers. She is wearing a floor-length dress with a 'libade' (traditional short-sleeved velvet jacket), underneath which a scarf is wrapped across her chest. He is dressed in a dark suit and a white dress shirt with a bow tie.
Comment:On the verso it reads that this picture was taken on the couple's 15th wedding anniversary on St. Sava's Day. The photograph was a gift to a female in-law.
