Mom, Frances Tuzzolino, in her prom dress in our yard by the kitchen's mini rose bush. Boro Park Brooklyn NY. Taken by our relative Tony Mistretta 4x5 Professional Color Slide - likely Ektachrome. The picture was severely faded. I worked on it for a hour. This is a scanned 8x10 print where the black border actually exists as a result of the transfer positive color printing process. I left it in to preserve the tell-tale technical nature of this late 1940s slide print. This was most likely printed by a Manhattan-class wedding/special occasion lab.

Mom vamping in her satin dress on 13th Avenue with 57th Street behind her in 1948 Boro Park Brooklyn NY. I forgot to add that my Grandmother made this dress. She [Letizia] was a seamstress, sowing in the fine lining into fur coats in NYC. Satin was often used as lining and often there would be some yards left over from a shorted fur run. Grandma also did insanely fine embroidery that I have to remind myself to photograph. She took pride in trying to make her daughters look like millionaires on little better than a sweatshop salary. This is also proof that a dress need not be immodestly cut to look extra-feminine. With Grandma cutting, the dress is well below the knees of course.

Brooklyn, early 1940s. Shorty was a friend of my Grand Aunt. I believe they were co-workers at a defense plant.

My grandmother, Marie, 1940. I love her outfit – especially her necklace. And she’s carrying gloves – something you don’t see much of anymore! Actually, she wore gloves the rest of her life, while outside or driving - to keep her hands looking young – just like the rest of her.
