Description Albert Russo age 6 months sitting on a chair with his brother Davey Russo age 4, both sons of former 97 Orchard Street residents Allegra and Sam Russo. The photograph (original) was taken at E. 108th Street probably around the time of Rosh Hashana 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.
