Belarus SIG #Belarus Carpenters' Union - Cleveland #belarus

In the venerable _History of the Jews in Cleveland_ by Lloyd P. Gartner,
Western reserve Historical Society, (1978) there is a picture with a
caption, but no text explanation.

The caption is as follows: "The Jewish Carpenters' Hall, East 135th St. and
Kinsman Road, home of Local 1750, ca. 1935." No other information is
given.

Does anyone know anything more? Anything at all?

Since Belarus was such a lumber producing area, and since there were
immigrants >from Grodno in Cleveland, is it possible that this union was
made up specifically of people with roots in that area?

Any replies will be gratefully received. Even factoids and trivia.

Many thanks,

Jack Braverman
