The past looks the same? The back door to the Mascunana Printing Company. Photos taken June 19, 2007,
Linda & Sandra enjoy reflective moments in Ybor City, Florida on June 19, 2007. This spot is where we used to play behind the Mascunana Printing Company at 1308 Broadway (now 7th Ave.) when we were little girls (About 1960). Sandy remembered the fence and Cuban Dedication as we passed by on the trolly car a couple days before! A search of the city directories at the Tampa Library confirmed that she was right! I tried to go back in my mind more than 45 years ago, but nothing would flicker to reward me with memories of that long ago childhood place.
I'll be posing more pictures and information about the Mascunana Printing Company owned by Manuel and Joaquin Mascunana that flourished in Ybor City, Florida from at least 1922 to 1960
I'm asking my sister to post these same picture on her website, because I think you can click on her originals for an enlargement. I downloaded these pictures and they stay small.
As I compile more pictures here on this website, please click HERE to see my sister's website posting titled, "Linda Left!!!" for pictures of us standing by the portrait of Jorge Mascunana - our step-grandfather who legally adopted us. His wife (our grandmother) was Carolyn Mascunana. Our family is portrayed in my book, "Dusty Angels and Old Diaries".
Take Care on the Journey,
