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.

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!
