I just received an invitation from a Yeshiva that solicits funds from me from time to time, let's call it Yeshivat Sukkah.
Yeshivat Sukkah is honoring 3 People or 3 Couples
The Text has names like -
Rabbi Avraham and Mrs. Sarah Cohein
Mr. & Mrs. Yitzchak Levi
Mr. & Mrs. Yaakov Sh'lishi.
Photos accompany the names of the couples, but only the male "half" is depicted.
Historically speaking, when did this practice, honoring couples while omitting the females from the pictures, begin?

Yezhov is clearly visible to Stalin's left. The photo was later altered by censors.

Airbrushing has long been used to alter photographs in the pre-digital era. In skilled hands it can be used to help hide signs that an image has been extensively retouched or "doctored".
As a result of Stalin's purges, and later destalinization, many photographs of officials from the periods show extensive airbrushing; often entire human figures have been removed. The term "airbrushed out" has come to mean rewriting history to pretend that something was never there. In contemporary academic discourse, the process of removing components from an image is formally known as object removal.
