Mr. Milavitz in front of his jewelry and tobacco store, Duluth, Minnesota

Mr. Milavitz stands in front of his store. A young girl stands to the side of the doorway and a child in a carriage is visible on the left side. Many avenues of employment were closed to Jews, resulting in a concentration of Jews earning a living as small shopkeepers. Many graduated from peddling to keeping a store after years of travel and establishing accounts on the road. ~ Photo Credit: University of Minnesota Libraries, Nathan and Theresa Berman Upper Midwest Jewish Archives
