This picture was taken at the factory where my mother worked. It was called Kaisers, and was located on DeKalb Avenue in Clinton Hill Brooklyn.
My mom was a seamstress and used to work on ladies gloves. Later in life when she lived in Kensington, she was simply known as "Stella the dressmaker".
She made everything from wedding dresses to children’s clothes and "bell bottoms" for my good friend Tommy Brennan when he was five years old. She also made me some really wild shirts in the 70’s that I’m sure my son would love today.
This photo was taken around 1940.
Buy the way, the factory is now a condo, and I was able to take my mom to see it before she died in 2001.
My mom is on the right hand side, She is the third from the bottom next to her sister Beatrice, who is wearing a hat.
Beatrice is still alive and lives in Toms River New Jersey.
