Salamon Speelman (1861-1928).

From at least 1892 to 1932, the furniture workshop / upholstery of Salomon Speelman, located on the Hoogstraat, was an A-location in Rotterdam.
Salomon was a professional and as far as can be traced, business went so well that he was able to remain established on Hoogstraat for many years.
Furthermore, the business has existed for a long time and it is noteworthy that in 1930 the “Speelman interiors” was advertised. Salomon had already died by then, but the business continued.
That was done until April 1932, when the business was liquidated. [Source https://www.joodserfgoedrotterdam.nl/salomon-speelman/]

Salamon Speelman ( 1861-1928) .

Van zeker 1892 tot 1932 was de meubelmakerij/stoffeerderij van Salomon Speelman gevestigd op de Hoogstraat een A-locatie in Rotterdam.
Salomon was een vakman en voor zover te achterhalen gingen de zaken zo goed dat hij tal van jaren op de Hoogstraat gevestigd kon blijven.
Verder heeft de zaak lang bestaan en is opmerkelijk dat er in 1930 nog werd geadverteerd met de “Speelman interieurs”. Salomon was toen al overleden, maar de zaak werd voortgezet.
Dat werd gedaan tot april 1932, toen werd de zaak geliquideerd. [ Bron https://www.joodserfgoedrotterdam.nl/salomon-speelman/]
