Florence Alice Atherton models the fashionable gown she will wear for her marriage to Edward L. Eyre in 1888. The 28-year-old was the daughter of Faxon Dean Atherton, one of Atherton's early residents, and was married in San Francisco at the home of her widowed mother, Dominga Atherton. Her husband was elected the first mayor of the town. Photo courtesy of Atherton Heritage Association.
