Abraham Rose (né Abram Brzezinski)


Leeds, c.1890s


Abraham was probably born in Kalisz, Poland, c.1849, but married in London in 1872.

He established himself in Leeds firstly as a tailor, then as a butcher and,

by the time of his death in 1903,the family ran a chain of kosher butcher's shops.


The photo in the centre is a duplicate of that on the far left, but has been cut into an oval shape. The reverse of the oval, shown here on the far, includes the remainder of a description of Abraham, in terms of the colour of his hair, beard, moustache etc.

Fanny Rose (née Samuel(s))


Fanny was probably born in London c.1854, and married there in 1872. She had 12 children in 25 years, mostly in Leeds, and opened her own rag business there after her husband died. She died in Leeds in 1918.


Probably taken in Leeds, c.1890


This photo is a reproduction carried out at a studio in Chiswick, London. This was the district where Fanny's daughters, Rachel and Leah, lived out their lives from the 1950s, so it can be assumed this reproduction dates from around that time.


Probably taken in Leeds, c.1905


Although Evelyn Fisher said this was Fanny's mother, Hanna Samuel(s) (née Schelinski), this seems highly unlikely, given the apparent age of the woman in this photo. The overwhelming resemblance to the photo on the left suggests this is also Fanny. The children pictured with her seem too young to be her children and too old to be her grandchildren, so they may be a niece and nephew.
