Here are just a few of the Italian Immigrants that were around North Adams at this time. 


Specifically my great great grandfather.  The gentleman sitting in the chair was the first generation of the Mastroanni family to come from Italy specifically to North Adams, Massachusetts.  While here he made and sold his own soda pop.  Stories have said that he used to own his own store however there are no records to be found to prove that information.


The younger of the three children is my great-grandfather and the two other boys are his brothers, however I never met them.
