The Globe Yiddish Theater, a traveling troupe, delivered a taste of big-city Jewish culture to Maine communities.
Jewish immigrants continued to speak Yiddish among themselves even as their children preferred to use English.
The Yiddish on the photograph is translated as: "Reb Hertzele the Aristocrat, Act I. Isaac: Mazel tov! Hertzele’s only son has just become engaged!"
