Irisha or Italiano – The Iacone Family – The Early Years No. 01 – October 14, 2017

This is an exercise in separating several hundred pictures of the Iacone family that have been in the family for years. I originally scanned the pictures years ago but have never attempted to organize the pictures. At the moment, I’m separating the pictures into time periods and location that the family had over the years.

This first blog on the picture will deal primarily with the early years that the Iacone family had in New York City and emigrated from Ragusa, Sicily. I don’t have the exact location in New York City at the moment and have labeled all the old pictures as New York City. There are several pictures in this category and I’ll label this part of the collection Early Years with this one being No. 01.

Dominick Iacone. This picture strikes a bell as possibly the time period when Dominick did a few magazine pieces, see other pictures from magazines, that were used in a detective magazine.

Dominick in the background with Mary holding lil Marie. This picture must have been right after they got married and had lil Marie and it looks like some of the friends that they hung around with in the old days.

Unknown man holding the baby but I seem to recall that Dominick had a bar back in the early days in Brooklyn, New York and this might be a picture of the bar. Back in the day, they did contracts on the back of a matchbook cover.
