They are named Mary and Elizabeth. They go to the same church. It’s in Greece. The church is called St. Mary. They get along well but like most people they have a little box on and some difficult times. Their outfits aren’t very exciting. They are wearing turkey wings and a black costume. It’s a very cold day and they are very fancy. They are wearing respectable clothes because they are going to church but it could be a fancy dress party. They are both rather pretty but they’ll hardly win a fellow dressed like that. But you never know in those days that might have been beautiful in those days. It’s rather questionable what they do for a living. Maybe they are dress makers at the show, showing what they have made. We can hear a horse and cart. Possibly it’s Victorian, it’s cold and miserable. They could be mother and daughter. Mary is younger than Elizabeth. It’s during the morning and they met a man on the way to church. We don’t know what they have done with him. He could be a padre. The man had a son who was a suitable age. They only knew each other for twelve months, and then they married. Usually someone falls pregnant. The young one is the bride. They might get out the knitting needles. They go on a nice honeymoon of course the mother stays home.
