    Great photo! I love their clothes, hair…everything! The house in the background is wonderful too.

    Looks like a 1940’s era photo.

    This was taken right after they were married…November 1940.

    Rouseau and Walter WERE a handsome couple. The house was called the Gingerbread House because of the carvings on the front portal and is now part of the Historical Home Tour. They were good people and wonderful parents.
