Digital Photograph - Sam & Rosa Baitz Dancing in Front Yard, Royal Park, 1930 Image Reg. No: MM 110709

Digital photograph depicting Rosa and her brother Sam Baitz dancing in front yard of their family home in Royal Park, 1930. Rosa was in a dress that her mother Rachel made. Their shoes were made by their father, Elias Baitz, who was a slipper manufacturer.

Elias and Rachel Baitz immigrated to Australia from Russia via Africa with their two sons, Alexander and Sam, and Rachel's sister's family the Grosovsky's (Grosby) in 1915. Elias initially went into business with his brother-in-law Moses Grosovsky (Grosby) before the partnership dissolved in 1926. Rosa and another brother Paul were both born after the Baitz family had settled in Australia.
