Tedesco's Oyster Shop - About 1930's

Tedesco's Oyster Shop - About 1930's

These are my grandparents Salvatore and Rosa Cristina Tedesco in their oyster shop. Salvatore was born in Termini Imerese, Sicily, Rosa was born in New Orleans, LA. but her parents were born in Ustica, Sicily. Sorry, the picture is very faded. I do not know where the shop was located in New Orleans, but the interesting thing to me about the picture is to the right there is a sign "2 dozen oysters for 25 cents". Oh how we wish that was the cost of oysters now! View full size.
