Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

Miss Anna Solomon

Miss Anna Solomon

Some time in the early 20th century, Miss Anna Solomon sat for her portrait at the Root Studio in Monmouth, IL. As you can imagine, a female with a fairly common name is nearly impossible to trace. Maybe someone will recognize her face one day. Her clothing is lovely, her hair stylishly done in a circa 1910s style, and her face serene. The portrait is oval shaped and mounted on firm bristol board which measures 5×7 in total.

One thought on “Anna Solomon

  1. IntenseGuy says:

    Monmouth was a “railroad junction” town that is between Chicago and Kansas City, it linked in Peoria (among other places). The Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway would have allowed Anna Solomon (and the photographer) to travel from/to a large number of places fairly easily and quickly back in their day – which further complicates “finding Anna.”
