1960 Frank P. Mineo and Giulia Mineo from Proctor Street St Joseph’s Novena Altar From WAYYYY BACK!

My name is Susan Mineo and my grandparents were (Capt.) (Francesco Paolo Mineo), Frank P. Mineo and Giulia Mineo from Proctor Street.  My grandfather’s boat was the Alden.  I came across this picture of my and myself in front of her alter.  Unfortunately, the picture is damaged but much remains of the alter and my grandmother and me as well as the tradition. I hope this picture makes your blog for I know many family members might take great pleasure in seeing it.

Thank you kindly,

Susan Mineo

Nonna and Me
