Lou and Marian - Engagement Picture taken in 1951 at my dad who worked at the Lorstan studio at the time. Lorstan was born out of the vision of two siblings, Laurence and Stanley Slutsker in the 1920's. Lorstan operated as a family business opening studios throughout New Jersey during the first half of the twentieth century. Although the family sold it in 2005, the company still operates to this day under the name Lors Photography.
