Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

This lovely photograph is of Bendicta and Ruth Trunk, left and right. Based on some other information found with the photo and the great comments on a previous post, I believe this is a photo from their First Holy Communion. One of my readers said that these pins are Communion badges. The photographer was Davies Bros of West Wheeling VA, which is just across the river from Ohio. I’ll date this photo between 1910-1920. There will be more to come on Benedicta and her family so stay tuned.

One thought on “Benedicta Trunk

  1. I wonder what her nickname was? Perhaps she went by her middle name! Can you imagine calling a baby Benedicta? Such a big name for a little girl. What a lovely First Communion Photo..they are beautiful girls:)
