This photograph is of a group of Blind Musicians with their manager in the middle at the back. I know this because my great grandparents are in this photograph - Annie and Aaron Solomon.

WOW Lynda...Annie and Aaron Solomon are my grandparents also, so I guess that makes us cousins...:) I would very much love to make contact with you to join the dots...Robyn

Hi Lynda, I think my great grandfather Henry Forder may also be in this photo. I know he toured with your great grandparents. I was wondering if you happen to have the names of the other people in this photo?
Thanks, Sandra
