Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, Winter 1958. Mr. Irene's Parents pay a visit to his Mom's relatives on Lowe Avenue. Mr. Irene's Mom's Cousin, Isa—seated on the right in the black dress—lived her adult life directly next door to "Hizzoner," Mayor Richard J. Daley. Mr. Irene's Mom's Aunt Agnes, sitting on Cousin Isa's right, enjoys the visit. In about six months, Agnes will help Mr. Irene's Parents finance their home in Suburban Chicago. Mr. Irene's Aunt Martha is taking the picture, and Mr. Irene's maternal Grandmother, Anna, sits at the front, still wearing her apron.
