Abstract

This is an oral history interview with Mary Italiano, a native of Ybor City born in 1903. Her grandfather, an immigrant from Sicily, had a grocery store and fruit stand on the corner of Seventh Street and Seventeenth Avenue. Italiano worked in the family business as a child, left school after fifth grade, and married when she was fifteen, to a man she met at an Italian Club picnic. Her husband had a wholesale grocery business in West Tampa, where they lived after they were married. In this interview, Italiano discusses her life in Ybor City and West Tampa as part of a large Italian American family and overall Latin community.
