Description Black and white (original) photograph depicting former 97 Orchard Street resident Saul (Bob) Confino, age 14, photographed on the roof of E. 108th Street, reading a book. The photograph was taken probably around the time of Rosh Hashana by his brother David A. Confino (They later changed thier 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 Abraham Confino and his family lived there at that time. The Confino Family lived at 97 Orchard Street between 1913 and 1917.
