Morris and Adele Silverman , wedding photo

1956 - Elliott Epstein Collection

Thank you to Phyllis Graber Jensen for the photo
Note: After more than half a century in business selling workingmen’s clothing and boots, Morris, who started at age 7 helping out at his father’s Lisbon Street store, Louie’s, and ended up running it after his father’s death, described himself as the last Jewish retail merchant in “probably the entire state of Maine.” Adele was jokingly known as “Sister Silverman” for the way she was addressed by a student while working at a Lewiston Catholic parochial school early in her teaching career.
