Description Photograph depicting East European immigrant Louis Graubard, who in 1889 married 97 Orchard Street resident Fannie Lustgarten. The Lustgartens also operated a kosher butcher shop out of one of the building's basement storefronts between 1889 and 1902. Graubard is believed to have worked in the butcher shop during the early 1890s, during which time he and his wife and children likewise lived at 97 Orchard Street. He later became the ward captain for the Tammany Hall political machine for the Lower East Side.
