Wanamaker 1910 Diary

This is a 1910 diary belonging to a 16 year-old Jewish boy.  The diary includes personal references to Southern Hebrew Sunday School and Gratz College.  There are articles of special interest to Jews, such as the article on page 7, about the “Legend of Esther” and the article on the “Shofar” on page 294.  The diary also contains advertisements.  These advertisements show items for sale at Wanamaker’s and other Philadelphia businesses.  Many thanks to the Ginsburg, Platsis, Pressman and Vederman families for making this document available to the JGSGP.
