Men studying the Talmud in a home for the aged, Vilna, 1930s.

Gouache painting (not recent) that I based on an anonymous B&W photograph in a book that I haven't been able to locate yet, but will post when I find it. I once owned it.

 

If anyone recognizes this scene, please let me know. It was in a large format paperback book of photographs of Jewish life in Eastern Europe, published in the 70s or 80s.
