Curiouser and curiouser. The recently posted photo of John Henry Smith and his bride, showing an earring in John Henry’s left ear, was scanned from the Brigham Young manual used a few years ago in Priesthood and Relief Society classes. But now someone has provided me with the original photograph, clearly showing earrings in both ears.
Once again, I have no explanation. I do have a big ol’ grin on my face for the unexpected details of history.
