My beloved great-grandmother, Brajna Kowalska (later Brina Tiskofsky)

 

Brajna was born in Radzilow in 1891 and emigrated to London in 1905, aged 13, following her father's death in 1900, and her mother's subsequent re-marriage. She married Zelig Tyszkowski in London in 1914 and died there in 1956.

 

London, 1906

 

Believed to be the first photo of her taken after she arrived in London in 1905. Her dress has a decidedly Eastern European feel to it.

 

Inscription on reverse reads:

"Brinah Kovalsky"

 

London, 1909

 

In this photo, her clothes are more Edwardian in style.

London, 1910

 

By this time, she is clearly a few

years older, and wearing a very smart English dress.

This photo was part of the estate of Lynda Harvey, and shows a group of people in period dress standing on the steps of a huge, rambling, Victorian town house, numbered 108. This is the house in which Brajna Kowalska worked as a skilled buttonholehand in her early years in London, while she was living with her uncle and aunt, Chaim Alter and Etka Linenberg. Brajna appears in the centre of the group, and her age dates the photo to around 1915.

 

Careful study of the photo reveals that it is, in fact, a photograph of another photograph, as suggested by the black border around two of its sides. It may be the case that the original photo was taken during Brajna's period of employment, and she later had the photo photographed itself, in order to preserve it. I have included it on Shmuelbennachum.com as a good example of the type of house in which so many young people worked as domestic servants in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, but also in order that the family pictured may be identified and copies of the photo circulated to their descendants.

  • Do you recognise anyone in this photo?

  • Do you know the name of the street on which the house stood?

  • Do you know if the street or the house still exist?

If you can suggest answers to these questions, please contact me at saulmarks@hotmail.com.
