Description:Full length photograph of a man and a woman sitting on a timber bench. The woman is wearing a long light-coloured high-necked dress and is holding an umbrella and a hat decorated with flowers. The man is wearing a military uniform and a light-coloured hat with a cockade. He is also carrying a sword. He is holding a pair of light-coloured gloves in his left and a flower in his right hand.
