JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Shumsk photo info needed -- ViewMate #general

I have posted on Viewmate - VM 744 - a photo of a house in Shumsk
with the caption "Finkelstein's House." This was the caption
in a dinner program dated 1946 from, I believe, Brooklyn.
Although my great-grandfather (Tevel Finkelstein) came from
Shumsk in 1882, none of the names in the program was remotely
familiar to me. The text was in English and Yiddish.
I believe this picture also appeared in the Shumsk Yizkor book.
I would like to find out more about the picture, where it came
from and where the caption came from. Who was the Finkelstein
whose house it was?

The address to find this picture is:
