A Keepsake from Ephrayim Epshtein
It was apparently a custom in 1930's for emigrating Wysokers to give an inscribed photo to their friends and relations remaining behind. This one was from Ephrayim Epshtein to Zlate and Reizl Vitshulker.

Notes: Such keepsakes from emigrating Wysokers were not uncommon. Were photographs becoming less expensive, or were the emigrating families more affluent?
