    Hello! My name is Lisa (Wittwer) Meacham and Gottfried Wittwer (on right) is my great-grandfather! His parents were Fredrick Wittwer and Maria Baumgartner. I don’t know the names of the other two men in this photo but suspect at least one could be a Baumgartner. Wittwer is my father’s side of the family; my mother’s father was Al Gaglianese, owner of Al’s Barber Shop at the Plaza on Hamilton Street. His brother/my great uncle was Russell Gaglianese of Gaglianese’s Flower Shop. :-)

    I remember this place well during the war (WW II). sawdust on the floor and no prepackage meats.. sausage and bologna were my favorites.
