Connected in time and space…part 4

Beginnings….

George Wallingford Downs, Jr…

written by Lena on the back of picture:

“This is the Downs cottage.  It faces the north – but the porch is on the east.  This is where Geo. Jr. sleeps most of the time.”

born to Russian immigrants Samuel and Monya Tureck in 1914 in Chicago, Illinois, the third of three daughters…pictures of Rosalyn and her childhood home may exist – perhaps with nephews Stewart Bramson and Alan Bramowitz…?
