Unknown Freeman or Drew Women
The woman standing at far right is Mary Elizabeth "Lizzy" Freeman, married to John William "Billy" Drew. I do not know if the other women are from the Drew or Freeman family. Both families originated in England and immigrated to the Scranton, PA area in the late 1800 and early 1900's.

Altho I am guessing that the other women are either Drew or Freeman family members, it is also possible they may be Hulse women. Lizzy (standing far right) was first married to Edgar Hulse. I do not know if this photo was taken before or after Lizzy remarried.
Date & Place: at Probably Scranton Area in Scranton, Pennsylvania USA

In 1893, in the year that Mary Elizabeth "Lizzy" Freeman was born, on November 7th, the women of Colorado were given the right to vote via a state referendum. Fifty-five percent of voters turned out and the referendum passed with 35,798 voting in favor and 29,551 voting against.

In 1917, Russian government offices were seized and the Romanov's Winter Palace was stormed in the Russian February and October Revolutions. The February revolution resulted in the abdication of Tsar Nicholas and a coalition of the Parliament and workers parties taking control of the government. The October revolution resulted in Lenin and the Bolsheviks taking complete control.

In 1921, hugely popular Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle, silent film star, was arrested for rape and manslaughter after an actress died following a party at his house. He was acquitted after three trials and the jury wrote a formal letter apologizing for the charges, but his career never recovered. His films were at first banned - the ban was lifted after a year - and he was mostly ostracized by the community. He died at 46..

In 1931, on May 1st, the Empire State Building opened in New York City. At 1,454 feet (including the roof and antenna), it was the tallest building in the world until the World Trade Center's North Tower was built in 1970. (It is now the 34th tallest.) Opening at the beginning of the Great Depression, most of the offices in the Empire State Building remained unoccupied for years and the observation deck was an equal source of revenue and kept the building profitable.

In 1952, on February 6th, George VI of England died from a coronary thrombosis and complications due to lung cancer. His eldest daughter, age 25, immediately ascended the throne as Elizabeth II and her coronation was on June 2 1953.
