Ray (Regina) is 26 years old. Her year of immigration is unknown (though I know it as 1911) and she is listed as Al (an alien, not a U.S. citizen).
They have two young daughters: Esther, age 4, and Hellen, age 1 7/12, who were both born in Ohio.
Rose Goodman, age 60, is listed as Mother (of the Head of Household). I'm working on confirming who she is... Update: Here is more about Rose (Handler) Goodman, also known as Sally Handler - she is Regina's mother.
I have not found the Solomon family in the 1930 U.S. Census, though I did find a few Jacob Solomons in Cleveland City Directories around this time.
By 1940, they had moved to 10517 Elgin Avenue, where Aunt Regina's husband is listed as Jack Solomon.

There are a whole bunch of snapshots taken on Rhodes Avenue, Akron from this time and I am very lucky to have these photographs, as well as lucky to have a mother-in-law with a sharp memory who has identified many of the people in the photographs.
More to come later about this couple.
