    In the fourth photo from top – the bochur at extreme left corner of photo, definitely seems to be a Korf – Avremel or Gedalya possibly?

    Also in the same photo – middle of table with thick glasses – Mr. Nelken possibly?

    All I know is that people had way more sense of style then. Not a mismatched suit in sight. Cool colours for hats and suits

    Yes, I know several faces in these pictures. They include my grandfather, Reb Scholom Dovber Zuber o”h, his elder brother Rabbi Menchaem Mendel Zuber o”h, and yb”lch – my great uncle (their brother-in-law) Rabbi Mottel Scharfstein. I also see someone who might be my GREAT-great uncle, Rabbi Nosson Notta Zuber. Originally from Russia, the patriarch of the family – Rabbi Yaakov Yisroel Zuber was sent to Stockholm Sweden. He subsequently relocated to the Boston, MA until his untimely petirah. My grandfather remained in Boston, Uncle Mendel was in Monsey, Uncle Mottel in Crown Heights, and the fourth brother-in-law – Rabbi… Read more »

    As a great niece to the Sharfsteins, I had fun looking for relatives. I found my grandfather, Schalom Zuber A”H and his brother Mendle Zuber A”H- brothers of the kallah. I also found their father’s brother Rabbi Nosson Nota Zuber A”H. And of course I recognized Uncle Mottle.

    For sure

    Amazing – thank you for sharing.

    Not trying to start a COL comment fight, but the reality is, aside from the dancing, the men and woman are separate. The good old days when everything wasn’t se—-lized. People were people and people could be frum and mentchlach without matters being complicated.

    THEY LEFT ME AT HOME

    I was only 6 weeks old when my aunt got married, so they left me at home. I never emotionally recovered from that. In photo #3, there is a man without a hat on the left side. his name is Berel Chafetz, he should be well. There is a famous picture of the Chofetz Chaim sitting on a chair outside of a house talking to a man who has his back to the camera. To the left of that man is a young boy about 8 to 10 years old wearing a cap. That is the same Berel Chafetz. In… Read more »
