Description This typical Italian family photo is of my father's family in approximately 1913 after immigrating to New York City from Italy. My father Daniel is standing front left, beside his sister Aida. My paternal grandparents, Michael Russo and Concetta Badia stand in the back. They later had another son, Richard, who is not in this photo.
