At Play In The Archive
Here’s a picture of Hilda, Leonor, and Margaret at Coney Island in 1917. The little girl in the front is, I think, Wally Keil, the daughter of my great-grandfather Leo Lessiack’s sister, Emmi Lessiack Keil. I’ll write some more about that family in a future post; it’s a sad tale to tell.
This photo was taken about two years before Margaret and Leo married, but if they were taking Wally out for a fun day at Coney Island, they were probably already courting. I haven’t yet sorted out how they met, but I’m working on it.
