Toronto Telegram, June 1920

The following marriages are taken from the Toronto Telegram, June 1920 issues. This newspaper had their marriages in two place - first, "The Sign of Cupid" appearing around page 12 and second, amongst birth & death notices near the back of the paper. The latter notices are shorter. Notices found in "The Sign of Cupid" tend to dwell on the clothing worn by the wedding party and I have chosen not to include those parts. They also do not include the date of the marriage.

Around the 3rd of June, "the Sign of Cupid" was replaced with "June's Brides".

These marriages have not been arranged alphabetically. Instead, they are in order by date that they appeared in the newspaper.
