Here is my granduncle Jakov Kalef leaving the royal palace in the center of Belgrade. Today this building serves as Belgrade City Hall. At the time of the picture it was the residence of the royal family. I don't know why he was there.

[Editor's Note: This building quite closely resembles the Jewish community building on Kralja Petra Street. There is a chance that the interviewee has misidentified this location.]
