Interesting! We share a great-great grandfather - Rabbi Lesser Perlman! Making us - what - 4th cousins? I had come across some old family photos after my father passed away recently, and found one of my late mother as a young girl in the 1930's, with her grandparents Isadore and Sarah Block. From that photo I learned for the first time that Sarah's maiden name was Perlman. My mother never was clear on the details, but I remembered her saying that she had a very rich uncle who had invented something to do with tires. So I Googled Perlman and tires and found this! Great story, very well told, cousin.

i found this story while searching for historical photos of my home town.
my grandmother bought the Perlman home in the 1960's. the home remains in my family to this day. I am not sure if its the same home you spoke of in the article or another structure on the property. i have always been fascinated by the history of this home and the Perlmans are an integral part of that history. Mrs Perlman left a treasure trove of items behind when she moved to England. furniture, antiques (dressers and tables are what i remember) as well as clothing from the late 19th century and an autograph book belonging to one Fanny Adler which dates to the civil war. i am wondering if there are any other historical pictures of the home(s)/structures on the original property? i would love to see an old photo of my family home.

That's a great story...the spare tire is certainly something most of us think as something which didn't need to be "invented"

Maybe thought any case great story and I always enjoy stories about people's personal lives or family stories

Loved this story, Jim. More like this! I had no idea your family was so interesting, though clearly I might have guessed--you being the amazing human being that you are! Will treat my spare tire with more respect now!

Hi Jim Wow what a story about your G.grandfather! And the painting a day guy—a real artist. Speaking of do you see much of dear Carlo M? Suzanne I & stayed at Villa Ca’ Toga (slept in cat through a cage room)years ago, so good to bump into your contagious enthusiasm for everything you encounter.

Great story Jim.
Thank you for sharing.
I'll think of this story the next time I call CAA to Pearlman my car....

A story that perhaps could only have happened in America. And only to someone with the grit, entrepreneurial spirit, and
vision that personified Louis Perlman

Great story! Over the years, I would have "thanked Louis" if I'd known who he was.
