The photographs document the Mazo family of Charleston, South Carolina, including three brothers, Elihu (1876-1939), Dave (1877-1954), and George (1879-1951), who immigrated to Charleston from Minsk. Each brother ran a deli—one uptown, one downtown, and one on Folly Beach. Florence Mazo Nirenblatt (1911-1998) was the daughter of Elihu.
