Description Black and white (original) photograph depicting former 97 Orchard Street resident Sam Russo photographed with a pipe in his mouth on the roof of E. 108th Street. The photographed was probably taken around Rosh Hashana, by his brother-in-law David A. Confino (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 his father-in-law Abraham Confino and his family lived there at that time.
