Information Question
Category: Do you recognize?
Family Surname: HEMPEL
Country: USA
Town: Philadelphia
Date of Image: Abt. 1920
  A photo of my maternal g-f, Edward Hempel, who disappeared shortly after this photo was taken. He was probably known by a different name in his native country of Poland/Russia and also wherever he went after leaving Philadelphia. He came to the US abt. 1912 and was born 1887-8. I realize profiles are difficult to ID, but this is the only photo I have ever seen of him and would be forever grateful for any leads.
