This month’s Insta Takeover is by Joe Russo.
Joe is a “Nortsider”, a retired teacher, and an aspiring writer. He’s been a guest contributor to our blog since 2012 (click here to read his posts) and recently went through some of his favorite photographs from his childhood to share with us.
“This is the typewriter I learned to type on. My Mom always had the typewriter set up on the dining room table. She was highly skilled with this tool and in demand for writing about community events, happenings at Our lady of Pompei and neighbors and friends who needed a letter but didn’t have a typewriter. There were no computers in the 1950’s and copies were made with carbon paper.”
