Object Description
Color photograph of an older man (unknown) holding a pipe to his mouth with his left hand sitting at a table.   He is wearing a wedding band on his left ring finger.  He is dressed in a gray suit, white shirt, matching gray vest and a diagonally striped tie.  He appears to be at some sort of event. The photograph is set into a black wooden frame with metallic-gold Greek key design around the inside perimeter. There is a narrow gold matting around the picture.  On the back of the frame is a print of an etching of a scene in ancient Rome. Possibly the Teatro di Marcello or Piazza di Spangna.
Origin
The Daughters of Penelope was founded in San Francisco, California on November 16, 1929, for the purpose of helping women and families of immigrants of Greek descent to assimilate into early 20th century American society. Now, a century later, the main focus is to promote the social, ethical, philanthropic, cultural and intellectual interests of its members, while preserving and promoting the ideals and traditions of Hellenism in each of our communities
