This is my uncle Lev Ulman, my mother's oldest brother. The picture was taken in 1915 in Petrograd on Nevsky prospect. He was 26 years old at the time. Lev lived with his wife Rosa Blonstein and their two children, Henrietta and Ilya. He worked as a legal adviser and his wife was a dentist. Henrietta was born in Leningrad in 1922. She got a higher technical education and worked as a leading specialist at the Electrosila Association to her very last day. She had no children. She died untimely of a serious illness at the age of 55. Her brother Ilya, who was born in 1924, pursued his career from a mechanical electrician to the deputy head of the Promsvyazmontazh Trust. He didn't have children either. He came to an untimely end at the age of 57.
