Request for help: Please help identify the persons on these photos!
A picture speaks more than many words!
This photograph of 29 people was taken in about 1927 in New York City. My mother thought it was a group called the "True Friends". The "True Friends" met monthly in peoples homes. They had picnics at Tibbets Brook Park in the Bronx, New York.
Or, it might be a group of members of the Slutzker Branch of the Workman's Circle. My grandfather, Joseph Osherowitz, was from Romanovo and Slutzk and was a member of the Slutzker 500 Branch of the Workman's Circle. From what my mother remembered, the photographer was a member of the group and his last name was "Mandell".
Most people in the picture are unidentified. Known persons include:
The rest of the people are unknown.
I am sending this for the unidentified pictures part of the Belarus newsletter, hoping that someone might help identify the others on the photo.
If you think that you recognize someone on the photo or have other information pertaining to the "True Friends" or the Slutzker Branch of the Workman's Circle please write to:
