McCaul St Shul-looking for wedding pictures circa 1910-1920

I have been given the Chupa from the McCaul Street Shul (Beth Hamidrash Hagadol). It was made in the early 1900’s by Albert Blumenfeld. He was the Shamash circa 1910-1920. He also served at the University and Henry St Shuls, where this Chupa may also have been used.

I am trying to locate any wedding pictures that were taken under the Chupa. It was has a white centre with a large Star of David in gold ribbon. The side panels are in a light turquoise blue.

This chupa is being donated to the museum at Beth Tzedek because these two Shuls were amalgomated.

If you have any pictures, please contact me, didi2929@rogers.com
