Charles and Hattie J. Ruhsenberger--1955

Charles and Hattie Ruhsenberger lived at 5930 East Washington Street for decades. They were married on April 17, 1895, in Clarksville, Indiana. On her wedding day, Hattie carried violets and for the remainder of her time with Charles, he gave her that flower on each anniversary. This is one of the last photos taken of the couple on April 17, 1955, on the day of their sixtieth wedding anniversary.

In this photo, the couple pose in their Irvington dining room. You can see violets on the table and what looks like a cake in front of Charles. This faded color photograph also shows the vibrant blue dress of Hattie and the interesting wallpaper behind the couple. This image and the touching story is courtesy of Ann Stewart.
