Meet the Marios

Sunday, February 1st, 2009

These are my great-grandparents from Porto De Golfo, Italy, near Naples – in the late 1800’s. Actually this looks like two pictures – heavily retouched – and printed together. My Great-Grandfather (the one with the mustache) was a policeman in that small town – my Great-Grandmother looks like she should have been one. I don’t know much about my ancestors but I heard through the years that my Great-Grandmother wasn’t known for her great sense of humor.
