Brothers Adolph “Al” (1904-1979) and Ezel “Skeets” Solomon (1906-1982) were born in Marion, South Carolina to Russian immigrants Abraham “Abe” Solomon (c.1877-undetermined) and Sarah Tavan Solomon (1872-1946). Their father worked as a retail clothing merchant, and their mother worked as a homemaker. By 1940, the brothers were living in Conway, South Carolina, where they established department store Solomon Bros. at 316 Laurel Street. A fixture in the Conway community for over three decades, Solomon Bros. closed its doors in 1973.
