The upper left photograph shows Ida Cook and her daughter standing in front of a house. Harry and Ida Cook owned the Cook's Russian Baths in Denver, Colorado. At night, the Baths served as a mikveh (ritual bath) that was operated for women by Ida Cook. During the day the Baths served as a popular steam bath open to the public, complete with catered kosher meals. The upper right photograph shows Harry Battock, who came to Denver to be treated at the Jewish Consumptives' Relief Society, and peddled fruit and vegetables from a horse-drawn wagon on Denver's west side. The bottom photograph shows Morris Hayutin behind a motorcycle, underneath a canopy. There is another motorcycle beside Morris Hayutin and several cars are parked behind the canopy. Morris Hayutin's bicycle and motorcycle business, the Western Supply Company, was located on the corner of 15th and Larimer streets in Denver.
