Sima Charny circa 1918

Taken at the Breen and Stover studio at State College, PA, this may be a wedding photograph. Max Kriss and Sima were married April 12, 1918 in Philadelphia. Reportedly born in 1891, she would be about 27 years old (but may be older). Max was born in 1889, and the custom strongly favored younger wives.
