Photo of the Day – January 23, 2015

Helen Lowry was my great grand aunt, the youngest sibling of my great grandfather Charles E. Lowry. She was born in Salem, Ohio in 1906 and in 1929 married Lawrence Murphy. She lived most, if not all of her life in the Salem area and died in 1991. This photo probably dates to the early 1920s. Helen would have been in her mid to late teens.
