A Photograph Surfaces


Among the things my aunt brought over this afternoon was this picture of my great-grandmother's brother. Instead of coming to the United States like his two sisters, he choose to leave Russia and go to Buenos Aires instead.

Cleaning out the closet of an older relative who just passed away in California, this picture was found along with some of his letters from the 1940's.

Was this picture taken in Russia or in South America?
