Group photo of the Nuccio family in front of their grocery store. Robert Charles Nuccio Sr., is standing in front of their automobile. Seated in automobile from left to right: Mary Viotto Nuccio, Mary's mother Nona, child is Chelestina and standing child is John Albert. Photo was probably taken upon the retirement of Robert Sr. from the grocery store and delivery business that he started in 1910. In 1923 Robert Sr. sold the business to John Gadeschi and Joe Vivalda. Photo was probably taken at 450 Hewitt Street, which was the address of Robert Sr.'s successful grocery and delivery business. View also shows the delivery truck used by the business.
