"I'm looking for old photos of Italian shoemaker shops in Baltimore between 1910-1940. If anyone has any, please contact me, or email photos to [email protected].

As an aside, my grandfather came to the U.S. from Sicily through the port of New Orleans in 1905 and eventually made his way to Baltimore. I was in New Orleans in September and asked many people if there was an equivalent of Ellis Island there. Unfortunately there was not. Immigrants were processed in various courthouses. I did, however, find a statue on the waterfront commissioned by the Italian American Marching Club."
