Notes, Sources, and References: 

  1. Coopers was the upscale women’s clothing store owned by Gertrude (Broida) Cooper and her husband, Irving Israel Cooper. It was in a very nice neighborhood by the very nice Chase Park Plaza Hotel in St. Louis, Missouri. When they closed the store Gertrude moved on to Helen Wolff’s, where she worked for many years- even into her 80s!

    1. Interestingly, my dad worked as a pharmacist just around the corner from Cooper’s and at the same time that Gertrude and Irv owned the shop, and their daughters worked there. So they likely had all spoken to each other a number of times before they met many years later when I married into the family! Guess it was fate…

      Thanks for reading!
