“Yeshiva Toras Chaim was founded in 1936”
That is incorrect. It is contradicted by one of your own illustrations below it which gives 1927 as the year it was founded. Please correct.
IIRC, R. Yaakov Perlow, Novominsker Rebbe, went there before transferring to Yeshivas Rabbeinu Chaim Berlin in adjoining Brownsville when older.
