|Ownership and History||The people in this photo are most likely members of the Isaacs family, one of the first Jewish families to settle on Staten Island. Askel Isaacs (ca. 1862-1926) worked for many years as a merchant, and was a founding member and vice president of Congregation B'nai Jeshurun. The 1910 census lists Askel and his wife, Doris, living at 1446 Richmond Terrace with their three sons and two daughters.|
