Photograph of Thomas Joseph (Tom) and Leah Carbone, ca. 1960s - en anglais seulement

This is a sepia photograph of Thomas Joseph (Tom) and Leah Carbone, taken in their home in Brantford, ON in the early 1960s.  The couple is seated together on an armchair with a multi-coloured polka dot pattern.  They are smiling at the camera and holding hands.  Tom is wearing a brown suit with a white collared shirt and multi-coloured tie. Leah is wearing a multi-coloured short sleeve dress with a collar.  Her wavy hair is cut short. Behind them are several household furnishings like a bookcase and a lamp.

This photo was taken by their longtime Jewish friend, Hyman (Rozie) Rozovsky; at the time, Rozie and his wife Gladys were visiting the Carbones. The Carbones and the Rozovskys remained good friends throughout the years having first met at the Buffalo Ankerite Gold Mines Ltd. during the 1930s.

Tom and his family lived in Timmins when World War II broke out. He was one of many arrested on June 10, 1940; he was interned until November of 1940.
