Celebrating Orange County’s Jewish History

In this photo taken in Santa Ana in the early 1920s, Applebaum’s Ladies Furnishings, located at 302 N. Main Street, can be seen sandwiched between the corner drug store and a men’s clothing shop. David and his wife Jennie were Russian immigrants who had settled in Minnesota. They moved to Los Angeles in 1916 and then to Santa Ana a year later, where David, a tailor by training, opened his store. The 1920 Census shows that their fourth and youngest child, Bernice, was born in Santa Ana that same year, and, in a pattern typical of immigrants, Jennie’s parents Henry and Rose Deutch and her sister Beverly lived with the family in their home on Bush Street.
