Wordless Wednesday ~ Mother and son

Arpad Handler (b. Jan 1910) and his mother Lena (Hollander) Handler

As I recently noted, I am thankful for having received a photograph collection from my husband's recently deceased aunt. This is the oldest photograph in the collection, which I would date to late 1910 or early 1911, based on Uncle Art's birth being in January 1910. (Immigration record lists his name as Arpad.) The photographer imprint is Molnár Lajos, Bonyhád, so I know the photo was taken before Lena immigrated to America. Perhaps this photo was taken to send to Josef, who had immigrated in April 1910, soon after Arpad was born. Lena and Arpad followed Josef to America in May 1911.
