This is a business card of my father-in-law, Marco Israel. He was a very respected merchant. My husband, Salvator Israel, was born on 2nd April 1908 in Plovdiv into the family of Marko Israel and the Hungarian Sephardi Jew Leontin Demayo, who had lived in Budapest and Vienna before their marriage. They met in Vienna on one of Marko's business trips. After they married Leontin came to Bulgaria. Marko was a merchant. His kin is from Plovdiv. Marko Israel was a very strict and demanding man. My husband, Salvator, wanted to become an agronomy specialist, but his father didn't allow him to and sent him to France to study medicine. Later Marko went bankrupt and lost all his money.
