Lavery Family Photos

Clara and Lillian Lavery, circa 1905>


Clara and Lillian in 1922>

Above Left: This photo of Clara and Lillian Lavery was probably taken around 1905, when Clara would have been about twelve years old, and Lillian, seven. (Were the girls photographed on the front steps of their residence?)   Above Right: Clara and Lillian in 1922. Clara’s nephew Robert C. Schenot, Jr. (Bob Scheno) recalled that Clara “adored” her sister Lillian.

Above Left: Lillian (Lavery) Scheublin (seated) with her friend Emma Anderson, in 1916. Clara wasn’t the only one who looked good in hats!
Above Right: Lillian Scheublin, in what looks like a flapper outfit, photographed on a rooftop in 1916. Two of her sister Clara’s grandchildren remember Aunt Lillian as someone who enjoyed having fun.  (“Aunt Lilli was a party girl.”)

Harry and Lillian Scheublin in 1916> Harry and Lillian Scheublin with baby>

Above Left: Harry and Lillian Scheublin together on a rooftop in 1916. Lillian appears to be wearing maternity clothing. A number of Scheublin photos were taken on a rooftop, quite likely at the building where they lived.   Above Right: This photo shows Lillian and Harry Scheublin with one of their infants. Lillian’s outfit looks like the same clothing she wore in the previous photo, suggesting that this child may have been their firstborn, Harold.
