Elizabeth Solomon (nee Harris)
Elizabeth Harris married John Solomon in 1856. He was 48 at the time but she was much younger. As John was a successful businessman they lived in Alberta Road, Darlinghurst, then a fashionable part of Sydney. She had seven children and 22 grandchildren.
It is clear that they were amongst Sydney’s wealthy elite as only rich people could afford to have their portraits painted. In Elizabeth’s case the painting was done by Richard Noble; a very popular portrait artist of the period who also painted John Solomon’s portrait.
