Is it Ruth's dad?

RUTH BIRD, of Manchester, took a special interest in Eli Weller's photograph last week of the foundation ceremony of the Manchester Central Synagogue in 1928.

She believes that her father, Abraham Jaffe, is pictured at the back on the left. Abraham came from Russia and lived in Bignor Street, Cheetham Hill.

He was born in 1887 and died in 1969.

If anyone can confirm to Ruth that Abraham is the man in the picture, telephone her on 0161-798 7358
