100 Years Ago on the Island

The two rough sketches of the countryside and the village give us an idea of the family names and businesses that were present on Sicily Island circa 1912-1913.  A few recent photographs of these same family home places and businesses can also be found below each sketch.  For a more specific comparison of the changes that have occurred on the Island over the years, see my previous post on Newman Avenue.
