About Gabriel Blum

After Gabriel married Jeanette "Jennie" Loeb in June 1891, they lived on the estate in Cheltenham Township, Pa. that had been built by Jennie's father, Jacob Loeb. Gabriel's brother, Ralph, married another of the Loeb daughters (Martha Washington Loeb) in September 1891. All of them lived on the estate along with Mrs. Jacob Loeb (Therese). The estate consisted of a mansion set on 59 acres and was called "Shifra."

In 1903, Ralph and Gabriel Blum founded the Blum Brothers Department Store in Philadelphia. It went out of business in 1914, at which time the Gimbel Department Store purchased all of its stock.
