"Newlyweds with a View"

© Beki Greenwood 2016

Troy and Sarah Grams rented the FNCA for their wedding party in July of 2016. A lot of Sarah's very colorful relatives from the U.K. came over for the event, and the Assembly fit the bill perfectly for the wedding reception as well as a place where everyone could stay a few days and experience the beauty of New England. It also introduced her family to this place which she has grown to love so much.

These are just two of dozens of photos taken by Edwin Capon when he attended the FNCA 1936-1940. Comparing the quality, style, and, tone of the images with his other photos suggests that these were probably taken on the early side of his attendance, perhaps 1936 or 1937. Note that the 3 people on the bench in the upper photo are visible above the rise of the hill on the left side of the lower photo.
