This September 20, 1949, photograph shows one of the most unique homes in Sacramento, the Simon Lubin House at 1304 Thirty-Ninth Street. The Moorish-style structure was built in 1924 by area contractor Fred Krum. Its namesake was the son of pioneer businessman and philosopher David Lubin, Simon Lubin. Not long after graduating from Harvard University in 1903, Simon returned to Sacramento to take up employment at Weinstock, Lubin and Company, where he would eventually become store president. Simon and his, Rebecca, lived in the house with their children – David, Ruth, and Miriam – during the 1920s and 1930s.
