Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past



This photograph dating from the early 20th century is about 4″ wide with the matting. It shows four girls who look like they are about 10-12 years old, and the title “The Big Four” tells me these girls were inseparable. Were they friends, cousins, sisters? The back has their initials, but no other names. I sure do wish I knew them and their story! The photographer’s mark is embossed in the right hand corner, indicating Warren.

  1. A terrific photo. The name “Big Four” was also a nickname for the Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago and St. Louis Railway or CCC&StL. I have a musical quartet that has the same nickname, which is how I learned this bit of trivia. Perhaps the girls and the railroad shared the name initials.

    Well the initials are D.A., H.M., M.K., and A.W. Nope, but that would be a good guess!
