  • This photo was taken in 1885 in Manchester England. It is the wedding of Jacob Banks and Sarah Wasserzug, the maternal grandparents of my father. I have been able to identify many of the people in the photo. Jacob and Sarah ended up in San Francisco in 1912. Their daughter, my grandmother Frances ,was 12 years old at the time.
