I recently obtained an old passport, complete with photo, of a young lady who is identified as Lillian Johanna LARSEN. It lists her place of birth as Warren, PA. It's dated June 1, 1925. She was a piano teacher.
It's far different than the passports we have now. She did travel, if I counted right, she passed into at least 7 different countries. There are assorted stamps also on this.
However, someone at some time, altered two items on this document. The first one shows her age as 26. The paper is green and you can clearly see an eraser mark. Then, the date of birth is altered. One eraser mark is where the 8 in the 18 should have been (in the year), and it looks like someone wrote ovfer the third number in the year, making it a 9. So it reads that it was issued in 1925, but her date of birth is: Aug. 24, 1993.
Inspite of the alterations, it is a wonderful document and the photo shows a thin young lady in the early 1900s. It does have the raised seal on it and a red stamp with a raised seal on that also. Back in the day, they listed a discription of the facial features. She had an oval face, an oval chin, a straight nose, fair complexion, dark blond hair, a large mouth, high forehead, hazel eyes, and she was 5'6" tall.
I'd like to get this into the hands of family. If you'd like to obtain it, please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
