If you’re not from around here, Imagine That! is a cool toy store on Market St in Corning. A few days ago, the owner of Imagine That! posted a photo on Facebook of her parents on their wedding day in 1942. Here’s a screenshot:

Within a few days, the photo had 187,479 likes, 21,944 comments, and 884 shares! If you didn’t already catch it, here’s the rest of the story from their Facebook Page:

…I posted a picture here of my parents from their wedding day 71 years ago (3/2/42)… Many believe the picture is someone they know as I didn’t mention my parents’ names. This viral experience has entertained my entire family, many of who spent yesterday celebrating my parents’ marriage – & yes they are alive and not related to most of these almost 3 million people! In many languages so many affectionately spoke of the greatest generation that fought and lived through WWII as I had mentioned my Dad being shipped off after they were married. He is pictured in uniform in their wedding picture… This has been a very fun experience and expression of love! Thanks everyone!
