    Biography I remember seeing a picture of Joseph, Marcus and David when they went to Panama during the construction of the Panama Canal. Marcus died in 1901 while on a trip to Paris but he was buried in Panama. I think David and Joseph returned to France.

    The De Sola family were Sephardic Jews who originated from Spain. They sought refuge from the religious persecution in Europe at the end of the 15th century. Herbert de Sola’s grand-parents emigrated from Holland & settled in Curacao in the Caribbean. Herbert was born in 1865 on the island of St. Thomas that was then in a Danish colony.

    With little formal education, De Sola began to work in Panama with the French Alsatian brothers Marcus & David Ascoli. At the age of 20, in 1885, they founded the company “Ascoli Brothers & De Sola” which was devoted to all trade & especially French imports.

    In 1895, De Sola left Panama & established himself in San Salvador where he began his commercial activities in 1896. His shop “Ascoli de Sola” sold luxury items from Europe.

    Later, De Sola opened his own luxury shop “A la Ville de Paris” where it was possible to buy hats, shirts, ties, silk , wool & cotton goods, as well as perfumes, furniture & guns.

    By 1903 the Ascoli brothers had died & De Sola organised the first consortium which produced sugar, with which he traded with both Europe & the USA. He was one of the first members of the Chamber of Commerce in 1915. Before 1920, together with the Gallardo de Santa Tecla family, he established a business in soap & candles. The factory was called “The Favorite”.

    He became the biggest shareholder in 2 companies producing trams in San Salvador; he opened a printing works; sold fire insurance & produced the first margarine in the country.

    Before 1930, De Sola came in contact with a Venezuelan, Mario C. Henriquez (1899-1977) who was the Venezuelan consul in El Salvador. His shop sold cotton goods, wine, spirits, leather & groceries as well as building materials.

    De Sola served as the Dutch Consul General for 64 years.

    Herbert De Sola & his wife Miriam Maduro (1868-1955), who was Panamanian, & the widow of Marcus Ascoli, had 4 sons. Herbert de Sola died on 1st April 1963 at the age of 98.  [1, 2
