Herman Berke               Roman Berke   

Roman has a cigar in his mouth of course.

This is a picture of the inside of the cigar store.  Roman is on the left and Herman is on the right .
Roman Berke. 

We think that he is about 10 years old.  That would mean that this picture was taken in about 1880. 

This photo was scanned from a tintype that was very small.

This is what the building looks like today.
