Elaine Robinson Mitchell wedding shoes, Peru, 1939

Contributed by Maine Historical Society

Elaine May Robinson (1912-1987) of Canton wore these white pinhole-punched leather shoes with two-inch heels on June 26, 1939 when she married Merton Wilder Mitchell (1899-1970).

Elaine's mother, Mabell Robinson made the wedding dress for her daughter. The wedding was held at the summer home of Elaine's aunt and uncle Ethel Robinson and Ray L. Linnell in Peru.

The house was decorated with pine boughs festooned with white flowers.

Wilder Mitchell owned a sawmill on Roxbury Road in Mexico. The Mitchells lived near the Mitchell family farm in Mexico and later built a house near the sawmill.
