Nahum Labounsky, 1934

Source: see below
This excellent picture of Nahum Labounsky, the brother of Avraham Labounsky. They have been, respectively, the first treasurer and secretary of the Palestinian Chess Federation. The picture had been sent to me by Ami Barav, the son of Israel Rabinovich-Barav, from Labounsky's grandson, Dori Parnas (ph. spelling). The brothers were Rabinovich-Barav's cousins.

Edited to add: Martin Weissenberg informs us that this looks like Salo Flohr, and have nothing to do with the Labounsky brothers. It indeed seems that way, but for the moment I am asking other reader their view.
