Description Black and white (original) photograph depicting former 97 Orchard Street resident Sam Russo with son David (Davey) on the roof of E. 108th Street. The building was owned by Sam's father-in-law Abraham Confino and his family lived there at that time. The photos were taken by David A. Confino (who later changed his last name to Coffield) around the time of Rosh Hashana. Furniture was brought up to the roof to make it appear as if the photos were taken inside the house.
