A picture is not only a reflection of people. It’s a reflection of compassion, love and memories.
This is my favorite photo of my beautiful Italian grandparents, Pat and Rose Porcellini. It was taken in the early 1930s in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
They were honeymooners and full of love and life.
Though the economy hit hard times in the 1930s, folks continued flocking to Atlantic City. It became even more well known when it became the city featured in the Depression-era hit board game, Monopoly, where players handled large sums of money and strategized to buy the best property along the boardwalk.
I just love how my grandmother, Rose, is holding a beach ball as a prop and how a guy who looks like “The Situation” from Jersey Shore is photo-bombing them!
Also they look so adorable in their matching, striped swim suits!
This photo is a glimpse into their young lives, before I ever knew them as my “grandparents.” I cherish it. ~shared by @friendswithtea
