This is a large photograph, taken in 1930, of the Apostolpoulos family home in Maywood, Illinois at 121 S. 6th Avenue. The family lived in the house for forty years. The donor's father, George, is pictured out in front of the house with a dog.
Mary Psyhogios's parents, George and Dina Apostolpoulos, were both Mediterranean immigrants. George Apostolpoulos immigrated to the US from Chirathes in 1917 while Dina Apostolpoulos came in 1920 from St. Basil, Tripoli. Mary had three older brothers and two younger sisters and the family grew up in the house depicted in the largest image. Mary's father George worked as a fruit and vegetable grocerer on 5th Avenue in Chicago (The Maywood Fruit and Vegetable Market).
