This handsome man is Emil Gross (II). He was my Grand Father i never got a chance to meet. Son of Emil Gross (I) & Marie Rožumberská.

Emil Gross (II) was born in Prague on February 10th, 1903 as a 3rd child of 4. In his young age, he used to live in Nikolajka Street, Prague. My Mother gave me a lot of his father’s Post Cards from his best friend , addressed to Nikolajka Street. This is one of those Post Cards :

Post Card Emil Gross 13 - 14.3.19


As i never got a chance to meet him, his Pictures and those Post Cards are a special way i can feel close to him. I cherished them so much. And some times i think, how nice it is that his descendants can actually hold his Post Cards. What will our descendants keep of us in this digital era ?

Emil Gross (II) was married to Věra Hamšiková on December 20th, 1946. My Mother gave me her parents Marriage Certificate :
