Birthplace: N/A
Died: N/A

M. Rosenbloom was a tailor who lived in Leadville only briefly, from 1887 to 1888. Unfortunately, no vital information on him has been discovered, leaving his life prior to arriving in Leadville a mystery.

Rosenbloom worked for two Jewish tailors during his tenure in the city: at Joseph Harwitz’s [1] store located at 111 ½ Harrison Avenue in 1887, [2] and at an A. Kertz’s [3] 122 Harrison Avenue shop in 1888. [4] Though his residence in 1887 is not known, in 1888 he lived at 106 South Harrison Avenue, the same residence as his employer, A. Kertz. Rosenbloom does not appear in city directories after 1888, indicating that he had left the city. It is not known where he settled after departing Leadville.
