Collection Cohn Family Photographs
Date of image c. 1930
Description Photograph depicting, from left to right, Robert Cohn, Ethel Raffelock, Frances Cohn, Abe Raffelock. During the 1920s and 1930s, Robert Cohn lived with his family in the Bronx and worked as a buyer for a manufacturer of mens ties. During the Great Depression, Mr. Cohn lost his job and sometimes journeyed into Manhattan in search of work or something that he could sell at a profit. Paula Sullivan, his daughter, recognized him in a photograph taken in Marcus & Brandies Auctioneers, which operated out of the south basement storefront at 97 Orchard Street during the late 1930s. He is believed to be among the men in the crowd.
