This photo was taken in Budapest sometime in the 1930s. These are my father's oldest brother, Ignac Izsak and his wife and niece at the same time, Ilona Steiner. I don't know who took the picture and on what occasion, but it is a good one. Aunt Ilus wasn't only taller than her husband, but she was a respectable member of the entire family. As a woman, she was the managing clerk of a bank, true, not a big one, and her siblings asked her opinion not only in financial matters, but also about the children's career, or even when it came to choosing a partner. Ignac, Uncle Naci, was as joyful in real life as he looks in the picture, he was good humored, he cracked a lot of jokes, especially with children, and he stepped behind his wife with a half step in real life, too. But in the stationer's shop and the rental library he was the boss - and the 'servant' at the same time.
