15550 Photo Identification

6/2/2010 5:34 PM This group photo was probably taken in the Pittsburgh, PA vicinity around 1914. The man sitting in the front row who's labeled Nathan Weiner is my paternal grandfather. My grandfather and the three other people in the photo who are labeled were all residents of Pittsburgh's "Hill District" who had -fairly recently - come to the US from the Belarus region of Russia. ----- I'd like to identify more of the people in this photo, if possible. I'm also interested in learning what the group might represent. ------ It's possible that the whole group was composed of Hill District residents. ------ The (black?) ribbons that the people are wearing suggest to me that this could be some kind of memorial event / picnic. ------- I'd appreciate hearing from anyone who can help to identify this group or from anyone who recognizes any of the people in the photo.------ I've posted a larger version of the photo here: http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/EQ2o7h9EiQE7gU8XDvxDcA?feat=directlink -
Thanks!

15551 Photo Identification

6/2/2010 5:34 PM Does anyone recognise this lady? I think she may be a Harris/Levy/Zeligman connection. Presumably quite orthodox as that looks like a sheitel. Photo taken at Romanoff's Cinema Studios in London. View the post, there are no responses
15552 Photo Identification

6/2/2010 5:34 PM The subject of this photo has written a little verse in Yiddish on the back of it. He's signed his name in Yiddish, but also in English - B. Levin.
He probably came from Lithuania, but where the photo was taken is not known. The reverse is printed "Post card" "correspondence" and "address" which could mean it was taken in England - or other countries!

15314 Translation - Yiddish

6/2/2010 5:30 PM This is a letter from Esther and her brother Jakób Tepper to an unknown Mr Rozendberg at an unknown location. I am most interested to know the contents of this letter, which eventually reached their paternal aunt in New York City. I believe they were writing to locate family after the Holocaust and would very much like to know the names and details that they mention. I see that they mention some surnames of their aunts in New York -- Tobias, Goldsmith, and Gartner -- for example. I have uploaded the continuation (reverse) of this letter separately.
