At the bottom, this photo says "Photographie d'art L.Marcovici Jassy Str. Lapuscneanu". I am looking for a date of this photo of what appears to be a widow with her two children. The young boy appears in my next viewmate entry, this time in a photo by A. Hurdus of 324 Grand St. NY. I know that Albert Hurdus was a photographer at that address in 1907 (don't know the range of years). My guess is that the family came to the US from Romania and that the boy died. The solo photo from Grand St appears to be exactly the same as this photo - presumably the photographer "photoshopped" this photo so they would have a photo of the boy alone.
Any guesses as to when this was taken? Other observations? Thank you!

3/4/2014 1:08 PM The dress of the young girl looks to be from between approximately 1911-1913. The NY photographer would have had the technique to enable him to make a copy of this photograph and re-touch the background. Re-touching of photographs is as old as photography itself. With regard to Hurdus and how it was at Grand Street, in the list of newly incorporated companies published in the New York Times of 23 November 1917, the three shareholders of the 'Paul Construction Company' of Brooklyn are 'S. Herman, P. and A. Hurdus of 324 Grand Street'.
