Albert Butler Richardson, son of Annah and Arthur Richardson, is pictured aboard a ship to America, probably in the winter 1919. After leaving Russia and travelling to China and Japan, the Richardsons took a ship to San Francisco, and in 1920 went to England.

Arthur Richardson, a native of Rockland, was the agent for the Chesebrough Manufacturing Company in Moscow, Russia. When the Russian Revolution broke out, the Richardsons were forced to escape to the east on the Trans-Siberian Railroad disguised as peasants.
