"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

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."
