Wordless Wednesday

Emma and Julia Ruch
twin daughters of Charles and Salome (Siegler) Ruch

born 21 Nov 1874 in Erie, Pennsylvania
They always used their middle names but Emma was baptised as Lisette Emma and Julia was baptised as Louise Julie.

Exact date of photo is unknown. Most likely late 1800s before Julia's marriage in 1901.
