Lit Family

This photo of the house that was owned by Boruch Lit was taken in 1928.  The house was sold to Michel Berkal in 1930.  The side where the people are standing was a restaurant and the other side was the dwelling.
From Arky Berkal:

"It was owned originally by Moshe Leib Shapiro.  The sign on that building says Uzvaziavimo ( I think that's pretty close to the spelling.  It means literally 'drop in and sleep.'  It was operated as an inn and sold alcohol.  ... When Moshe Leib Shapiro died his son-in-law Boruch Lit acquired the property and I think he continued to operate it.  In the tax rolls Moshe Leib appears with the notation 'sells alcohol.'  That property also had one side for the dwelling of Moshe Leib Shapiro and family and the other side for the business. Boruch Lit sold the property to
Michel Berkal and one side was occupied by Michel Berkal and the other side by Berel Segal."
