Anthony always knew he was headed for the big time; the only question was, whether this meant big time East Coast U.S.A. style, or back home, in Italy. As "luck" would have it, neither one. Anthony was sent out to the West Coast, to oversee the burgeoning tuna trade and make sure it was all under family control. San Diego, who ever heard of San Diego?
Turns out San Diego's Little Italy was exactly the vibrant community Anthony needed to thrive, while simultaneously making his family proud. While in San Diego he also discoved a passion for plants and gardening. Here Anthony stands in front of one of his favorite agaves at Balboa Park. Anthony disappeared just 3 months after this photo was taken. Rumor has it a rival family was ready to take over the tuna trade and Anthony ended up buried throughout the park… fertilizer for the very plants he adored.
***Yes this is another attempt at an inventive interpretation of one of the many black and white photos my husband has given me over the years, I hope you enjoyed my "creative narrative"...***
