Bernard Schulman and Anna Schulman-Lewis were married at the bride’s groom’s family home at 235 West 21st Street, Los Angeles, California.

In modern times it might not be surprising to hear that a bride and groom had set up house together before the nuptials, but in 1910 it was not something that would generally be admitted to. Bernard and Anna, however, were not living in sin, they were step-siblings and the home was that in which they lived with their parents.
