THE PRESS FAMILY
 
Minsk, Belarus
1899


 

This photo was taken shortly before the family immigrated to the U.S. in 1901. It was taken in Minsk sometime between 1898-1899. They settled in New York City and made good lives for themselves. Joe Press and his father opened a dairy store to support the family. The child Dora in the photo married Dan Salk and had three sons: Jonas, Herman and Lee.
