The following is a short description of the book and a link to the listing
listing on a major auction site that shows many of the pictures.
"BIALYSTOK - PHOTO ALBUM of a RENOWNED CITY and its JEWS the WORLD EVER -
1200 Interesting Pictures With YIDDISH and ENGLISH TEXT" was published in
1951 NYC by the BIALYSTOKER ALBUM COMMITTEE. Compiled and Edited by DAVID
SOHN. This MOST PRECIOUS ALBUM holds in its 400 pages ONE THOUSAND TWO
HUNDREDS PHOTOGRAPHS, Presenting literaly MANY THOUSANDS of BIALYSTOK Jewish
inhabitants in BIALYSTOK and all over the GLOBE.
The nineteenth century is represented by some paintings and I would estimate
that about half the pictures are of Bialystokers in the US. I found a copy
at the St. Louis County public library where it cannot be removed >from a
special genealogy room. I have no idea how likely other libraries are to
have this. At a glance they seemed to have over a hundred reference books on
Jews who lived in what is now Poland so I'll be spending quite a bit of time
St. Louis, Missouri, USA
