The brothers were Herb (1884-1952), Leon (1886-1962), Sigmund (my grandfather, 1888-1968), and Ben (1892-1965). Additionally, there was another brother, Arnold (1890-1890), who I wrote about here.
Here are the boys in about 1889, before Ben was born.

Here’s the young family in about 1890.
The family looks so small in this photo – here’s a close up.

Herbert, Leon and Sig
And by 1892 Benjamin had joined the family.
The house had sure changed by 1907!
Although I don’t know the date this was taken, the family were all together and posed for a photo. My best guess would be that this was taken somewhere about 1906-1908 based on the ages of the boys.

By 1920 Levy Brothers was a thriving business and it looks like there were a number of people working there besides the four brothers.
I can’t make out much in this photo except I do see my grandfather, Sigmund Levy, second from the right.
The Levy Brothers ventured out for a photo in 1929 – boy do they look dapper!

And they were together again in later years.
