Description Members of the Boscowitz and Rubin familes stand in the Star Bakery store surrounded by loaves of bread. Pictured from left to right are Rudy Boscowitz (Boscoe), Elya (Eli) Rubin, Eva Boscowitz Rubin and Sam Boscowitz (Boscoe). Located at 2744 West Colfax in Denver, Colorado, the Star Bread Company (operating as Star Bakery) was founded by East European immigrants Eva and Jacob Boscowitz in 1907. After her husband's death in 1909, Eva Boscowitz continued to operate the store, later marrying another baker, Elya (Eli) Rubin. The boys changed their names to Rudy Boscoe and Sam Boscoe, eventually taking over and operating the business until the 1970s.
