Vintage photos of:
My grandfather Nicola Chiulli lived in Rockaway from 1929 to 1941, when he died in Rockaway Beach Hospital. He was a gardener and lived at 129 Beach Street. The photo is from about 1937, taken by Feiner Studio in Rockaway. I never knew my grandfather; if anyone knew him or has any information about him, please contact me.
Thanks in advance and best regards. Nicola Chiulli MD, Italy.
