Nice Collage photos

A few nice collage images I found:

Rabbi Albert Minda of Temple Israel

Rabbi Minda succeeded Rabbi Amos Deinard at Temple Israel after Deinard’s death in 1921. Minda was a graduate of Hebrew Union Collage, and served Temple Israel until his retirement in 1963. Minda was an exceptional leader, presiding over the construction of a new synagogue in 1929, the founding of the Minneapolis Jewish Federation in 1949, the Minneapolis Urban League and The Minneapolis Roundtable of Christians and Jews. In Minnesota’s Centennial year–1949–he was designated as one of the "Hundred Living Great [sic] of Minnesota."

On the rooftops of London. Coo, what a sight!
Image by National Library of Ireland on The Commons
With the weather being a bit grim in Ireland today, thought we might go all Mary Poppins and take ourselves off over to London for a change.

Can’t identify any individual business except for Stokes Leather Warehouse (see note), and it’d be great to get some idea of the spot from which this one was taken (over to you, mapping gurus)…

Date: 1860-1883

Sports in Upper Arlington, 1918
Image by UA Archives | Upper Arlington History
Sports were an important part of Upper Arlington’s beginning. Activities included baseball, tennis, horseshoe pitching, croquet, and fishing, and many members of the community were involved. This photo, from the January 1919 issue of the Norwester magazine, was part of a sports collage following a short article reviewing the accomplishments of the Upper Arlington community during the previous year. The writer mentioned that the "baseball team prospered, winning a majority of its contests."
