Notes
The front of the postcard shows a portrait picture of D. Frischmann, who is wearing glasses, and has a mustache. On the back is a stamp from the Austrian-Hungarian Empire with a portrait of Kaiser Franz Joseph, worth 5 Heller. David Frischmann, also known as David Frishman (1859, Poland-1922, Berlin) was a poet, essayist, storyteller, critic and journalist, one of the first major writers of modern Hebrew literature. Narrative: This postcard was written by Bernhard Kissman (Donor's father) to his fiancee Fritzi Winter (Donor's mother) who lived at that time with her parents in Tescheutz, Bukowina. They got married in July 1913. Bernhard Kissman worked at various places in forestry. Postcards between them were written daily, often a letter followed.

History Biographical
Harold and Eva Levy, long-time residents of Cote St-Luc, were active community members. Mr. Levy began his career as a tailor. He later went on to manufacturing children's outwear.

Other notable items include the 'pearly outfits' (which were costumes made for a charity event), with buttons hand sewn into elaborate designs by the Levys and their friends. The Levys were also part of the original founders of the Beth Zion congregation in Cote St-Luc. The first cheder for the congregation was held in the Levy home. Mr. Levy was also a member of the Pipe Smokers' Club of Montreal. Mr. Levy served in the Royal Canadian Air Force during World War II.
