This is a beautiful image of a very well dressed couple. Photo was found in Madison County near Utica, New York. See the Katz photographer's beautiful and fancy, ornate advertising backmark on the reverse of the photo.  The Sala's were Italian immigrants arriving to the United States between 1882-1884 according to their reports to census readers. The 1920 census record incorrectly states they arrived in 1893. This is a stunning photo.
