Lawrence - Louis and Edna - wedding - 1940s - colour

Collector/curator’s description reads: “Mid-1940s, Vancouver. Hand coloured wedding photo of Leonard and Edna Lawrence. It is the mid-1940s and Louis, who is from New Brunswick, marries the love of his life, Edna. Louis would be best known for his boxing career. In 1950, he turned professional boxer. Sparring in 25 bouts, he won 15 of those matches with a knockout. In 1955, Louis was crowned Canada's middleweight boxing champion. For some reason, after winning that title, he never boxed again. Louis worked for the Canadian Pacific Railway/Via Rail and raised four children with Edna.”
