Re: Photographer L. Epstein, Minsk #belarus #photographs


From information I have in my files I have the following note:

Photographer  Lev (Leiba) Meerov Epstein’s studio was located  in the two story Erohov building in Gubernatorskaya Street, opposite the Town Hall, located  at the intersection with Yurievskaya Street. He received permission to work in 1895. A  certificate (No. 4611/28) received in 1901 shows his membership in the famous Vitebsk Photographic Society. He was awarded the gold medal for his works at an exhibition in 1903. An ad of his was published in the  "The Minsk Courier" newspaper in 1919, which invited clients his studio at 10 Gubernatorskaya Street. Apparently he was active for at least 20 years.

I hope this is of use.

Best regards,
