In the 1940’s, Hyman went into the liquor business with his son-in-law Ben Malkin. Soon they helped Bill Gurvitz, another of Hyman’s five son-in-laws, get started with his own store. Ben sold Bill his old icebox at cost. And Hyman, still a carpenter, built him shelves and a bar. Bill named it Victor Liquors. Shots were a nickel and beers were a dime. It is now an empty lot next to an alley on the south side of Chicago.
