36160 Photo Identification

10/19/2014 5:32 PM This portrait (without the artificial glare at lower right) titled "The Rabbi" by Polish artist Solomon Leski has hung in my family's home for decades. We wonder if it is more than mere coincidence that the subject of the painting resembles my father's side of the family. That branch purportedly has a rabbinical background and, like Leski, comes from Warsaw. We would like to learn whether Leski's paintings were of particular individuals and, if so, it this person can be identified. Thank you for any leads. View the post, there are no responses
36161 Do you recognize?

10/19/2014 5:32 PM This photo comes from the Finkel family who hail from what was then called Akkerman, Russia. Can anyone identify anyone in the picture or venture a guess as to where or when it might have been taken. There is no photographer referenced on the reverse so it may be a restoration. Aaron Finkel arrived in the US with his first wife Annie Gershon and their daughter Jennie about 1900 but we do not believe the woman with the baby is Annie. View the post with its 1 response
