Joe Messina Seafood ad – 1929

From the 1929 telephone directory, I saw this little ad. Joe came to Monroe from Cefalu, Italy in 1906 (according to his obituary). For fifty years he ran a local grocery store. He was one of the early Italian immigrants to settle in Monroe and his descendants still are well known in Monroe today!
