Treasure Chest Thursday: Joseph Myers advertisement, FLPBA 25th anniversary publication

I shared a short biography and photograph of Joseph Myers (1889-1945) in an earlier post about the 25th anniversary publication for the First Lubiner Progressive Benevolent Association. He was a glazier who had joined his brothers (Myer and Louis) in the United States, arriving in 1906.[1]

He married Rose Adler on 25 March 1913.[2] By 1936, when the First Lubiner Progressive Benevolent Association celebrated its 25th anniversary, Joe and Rose had lost their second born, Marvin. They had a daughter Lillian (born 15 February 1914) and a son Eugene (born 10 August 1918).

Their home in 1936 was just around the corner from Joe's glass and picture framing shop at 590 3rd Avenue. Unfortunately, the buildings now at 155 E. 39th Street and 590 3rd Avenue are of more recent construction.
