IOBA Lodge group photo circa 1895; #usa #photographs
I've posted a photo, circa 1895, of an IOBA Lodge (Independent Order of B'rith Abraham, founded 1887 according to encyclopedia.com). No specific question - I'm just sharing this photo for anyone interested in IOBA lodges or groups like them.
It is on ViewMate at the following address https://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM93777
My great-grandfather was ID'd by someone (Joseph Salwen; originally Solowejczyk; immigrated in 1882); he lived in Manhattan at the time. This is a scan from our family's original copy, which I restored a bit. I don't know which NYC lodge it is, but thought someone out there might collect such photos or know more about these lodges or of a repository that might like to have the photo.
I've learned a lot from this group; thanks to you all!
