Among Uncle Paul's belongings was this old photograph, lacking inscription or attribution. I believe the image is a synagogue as viewed from across the street. I know this is a terrible scan, but in the original a star of David can be glimpsed in the "rosetta" window. I'm thinking this is the kind of posh, orientalist synagogue that well to do Jewish communities sometimes erected around the turn of the century. I will likewise guess that this is Vienna, where Paul was born and spent his early life. Anyone recognize the street, place, or building?
