Description Black and white photograph (not original) depicting Esther Confino Kaplan, age 5 on the roof of E. 108th St. in Harlem. The photograph was probably around the time of Rosh Hashana. The photo was taken by David A. Confino (who later changed his last name to Coffield). Furniture was brought up to the roof to make it appear as if the photos were taken inside the house. The building was owned by Abraham Confino and his family lived there at that time. The Confino Family lived at 97 Orchard Street between 1913 and 1917.
