ViewMate: Can you identify anyone in this photo: Friends & family reunion in Bad Ems in the mid-1920s

Joyaa Antares

Dear Fellow Researchers,


I have posted a photo of a mid-1920s friends/family reunion to ViewMate.    It shows 24 people.  


The photo was taken at the Hotel Staatl Kurhaus in Bad Ems, Germany but the identified family came from BERLIN (1870s), and prior to this from Scherwin and "Friedeberg".


The photo shows Aron LEVY, Louise (nee BADER) LEVY and their grandson, Eddie LEVY.   Aron and Louise moved from BERLIN to London, England in the 1880s.  I expect that many or all of the 21 unidentified people were based in Germany.   Aron was a Tailor or Hatter, so people from this profession may appear.   Young Eddie was a teenager so his profession isn't relevant, but if this is more of a family photo, then it will help to know that his mother's maiden name was SKOTZKI, and his maternal grandmother's maiden name was BANSEMER.


Do you recognise anyone?

Please respond via the form provided on the ViewMate image page.


Thank you very much.
