This is a digital reproduction of an image held in the private collection of George Harb.

This photograph shows the wedding of George Harb's maternal cousin Amal Dos and her groom George (from Lebanon) in Egypt on 4 September 1954. George Harb’s brother Albert is positioned to the groom’s right. The time period is indicated by style of dress popular in the mid and late 1950s; for women a tight bodice that pulls in the waist and meets a full skirt. For men, suits often dropped straight to the hip hitting around mid-thigh. Most suits were single-breasted with long, wide lapels, and fastened up the front with two or three buttons sitting low, exposing a long necktie and usually no waistcoat.

This image is part of the George Harb Photos collection, within the George Harb project of the Planet Bethlehem Archive.
