To his left his father, Joseph, and his mother [Flora Stein] holding Monroe (or is it Irving, Jr.?). His wife, Rose, holding Irv (or Monroe).

||1900 United States Census - Hazel and Rose Osterman|
The 1900 census shows Hazel and Rose Osterman, twins, born in California in November 1890, boarding at the Pacific Hebrew Orphan Asylum and Home Society on Devisadero Street, San Francisco. The details of their parents, and the other children in the school, are shown as "unknown."
From the Jewish News Weekly of Northern California 3 Mar 2000, "In 1872 [...] the Pacific Hebrew Orphan Asylum was established under the leadership of Temple Emanu-El.
"David Goldstein, now an 87-year-old San Leandro resident, moved into the orphanage in 1918 along with his sister, Anna. They weren't orphans, but their 66-year-old, widower father felt he couldn't adequately take care of them. So the Oakland optometrist placed his 6-year-old son and 8-year-old daughter into the San Francisco orphanage, a rickety Victorian on Divisadero Street.
"Built in 1891, 'that place...already was a dump when we moved in in 1918,' Goldstein said. 'It was tacky.' The building is no longer standing."
From www.kesh.com/hnoh/USJORPH6A.html listing of Jewish orphanages in the United States: "In 1871, the PACIFIC HEBREW ORPHAN ASYLUM and HOME SOCIETY, under the leadership of Rabbi Elkan Cohn, from Temple Emanu-El was founded to house 'orphan Children, and to establish and support a homed for aged and infirm Israelites.' Within a year, enough money, $20,000, was raised to buy 12 acres at Mission Street and Silver Avenue. But without funds to erect a building, the agency continued to support its clients in their own homes. Finally, in 1891, a rambling, wooden Victorian structure was built on the site for under $57,000. Twelve people took up residence. The 1905 census listed over 200 children and 40 aged persons. In 1919, the PACIFIC HEBREW ORPHAN ASYLUM and HOME SOCIETY and the HEBREW HOME for the AGED DISABLED consolidated under the latter's name and one roof. It was located at 436 O'Farrell with 190 children and 34 aged persons."
