Birthday remebrances today for Leonora Teiger, daughter of William Teiger and Dora Reinlieb, who was born this day, New Years Day, in New York in 1928 at the height of the Prohibition era in America. She passed in Jan 2008 in Long Beach, California. The 1930's American Census shows a young Leornora living with her parents in the Bronx area of New York probably in a tenament building in very cramped conditions. Other people listed on the same page who would have been their neighbours show the area was highly concentrated in immigrants mainly of Russian or a polish origin, forming their own communities and sticking together. They also had a visitor from the UK staying with them, Leonora's Uncle, Moses Meyer Teiger, known as Philip.

Leonora married Sol Fields (Finkstein) in 1947 and didn't she make for a beautiful bride on her wedding day, in fact they both look rather fine!

Happy Brithday Leonora.
