Pictured from left are Annah and Arthur Richardson's four children, Charles, Margaret, Albert, and Frederick, who was also known as Ted. This photograph was taken in London in the summer of 1927.

Annah Parkman Butler and Arthur Berry Richardson, both of Rockland, Maine, were married in May 1914. Frederick S. Fales, Annah's cousin, offered Arthur a position as the agent for the Chesebrough Manufacturing Company, makers of Vaseline, in Moscow, Russia. The previous agent, a German, had been interned by the Tsarist government at the outbreak of World War I. When the Russian Revolution broke out, the Richardsons were forced to escape to the east on the Trans-Siberian Railroad disguised as peasants. From Russia they traveled to China and Japan, and returned to the U. S. in late 1918. Richardson worked for Chesebrough from 1920 until 1936 in England, where the couple's four children were educated.
