Interior of the Boston Store, Hibbing, Minnesota

Four people stand in the aisles inside the Boston Store. Hibbing had a large Jewish population relative to the general population. Jews were active in civic life as well as Jewish community life. Jewish Iron Range families prospered during and after World War II, and many young people left the Iron Range for college.
