1920's - Frances Winifred & Mary Eugenia McDonald

Sisters Frances Winifred McDonald and Mary Eugenia McDonald most likely photographed in the late 1920's. The back of the original photograph is labeled "Jean & Fran".

Frances Winifred McDonald was the oldest child born to Loraine Anthony McDonald and Frances Philomena Selker. She was born March 18, 1920 in Clarion, Clarion County, Pennsylvania. Mary Eugenia McDonald was the second child born on January 22, 1922 in Strattanville, Clarion County, Pennsylvania.

The location of the photograph is unknown. There is a possibility the photograph may have been taken in front of 3216 Landis Street in Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. The 1930 United States Federal census records Loraine's parents Robert A. McDonald and Winifred A. O'Neill living at 3126 Landis Street. The house in the photograph below is very similar to the images available of 3126 Landis Street.
