An Unusual Marriage

Dear blog reader.

This account of an unusual marriage to an employee of the Shandon Experimental Station caught my eye and I thought you might find it interesting as well.




Saturday 13 September 1919.


Miss Mabel White, daughter of Mr and Mrs William White, 1 Thewlis Street, was married under novel conditions to Mr Donald Titchmarsh, of the Admiralty Experimental Station at Shandon, on Saturday.

Miss White has been living on Loch Lomond on the houseboat “Iris” with a friend for several months, and a neighbour was Mr Titchmarsh, of the houseboat “Why Not”.

The ceremony was performed on the “Why Not” by the Rev J T Sivewright, of Alexandra Parish Church. The honeymoon was spent afloat the Commodore’s yacht.
