A Star Crossed Wedding

I've been trying to have month-long themes based on what National _____ Month it happens to be, but the ones for March are either dumb, or are really not very translatable into antique photos. (Like National Frozen Food Month- really guys?)

So, we will continue on with some great actors and actresses of the past by celebrating the plays of one W. Shakespeare on the wedding day of Juliet and her Romeo:

1895 Stella Patrick Campbell and Johnston Forbes Robertson as R&J

1911 Phyllis Neilson-Terry with F. Laurence Vernon as R&J

Modjeska as Juliet

1872 Adelaide Neilson as Juliet

Henry Ainley as Romeo

1882 Miss Ellen Terry as Juliet (don't worry, you'll get photographs of her in her famous Lady Macbeth costume eventually)

1908 Nora Kerin and Herbert Grimwood as Juliet and Lord Capulet

Charlotte Cushman as Romeo
