Wedding Portrait Mystery | News
BUFFALO N.Y. - For more than 30 years Ettore Porreca and his partner Ralph Winter operated one Buffalo's finest photography studios. The owner of the exclusive dress shop, Tegler's, was so impressed with these portraits that she hung them in her shop.
Years later, as Tegler's closed, Mister Porreca got all of those portraits back. The trouble was, there were no names on the pictures.

Enter the Buffalo History Museum. Ettore Porreca has turned over nearly 60 portraits taken during the 1950s, '60s, and '70s to the museum in hopes that they might be able to connect the brides with their portraits.
The museum will be holding their first annual wedding-themed fundraiser on Sunday, March 3, 2013, at which the Ettore-Winter bridal portraits will be on display.
For more information on the event, or if you might know one of the brides, you can contact the Buffalo History Museum at 716-873-9644 or on line at buffalohistory.org.
