Year: 1938. Left to right,my Aunt Rose Puco,cousin Jackie(baby), and my beautiful grandmother, Katie Puco. I have enough evidence to believe that this photo was taken in front of the war memorial in Thomas Jefferson Park, in East Harlem.This memorial was known to East Harlemites as “The White House.”
