Ida grew up in Somerville, Massachusetts moving to Baltimore sometime between 1910 and 1920. In 1920 we find her living with her parents in Baltimore working as an advertising agent for a chemical company. On her passport application she stated that she was single and had never been married and that she was planning to travel to Great Britain, France, Switzerland for pleasure departing aboard the Republican on July 3, 1924. What an adventure that must have been! In 1930 we find Bertha in Baltimore living with her mother working as an advertising manager for a chemical company. She remained in Baltimore until her death on August 1977 at age 91.
Unfortunately we don't know much more about Ida but are thankful that she had to have her photograph taken before she went on a vacation to Europe in 1924.
