Alvarado St. 1958-2009

Alvarado Street in Monterey during the 1958 urban revitalization project juxtaposed to a present day photo from approximately the same location. Notice the demolition of The Keg, where Cibo Restaurant is located today. Wells Fargo Bank and the State Theatre are noticeable in both photos.

Pietro Ferrante

On this post I need your help. This is a photo from the Herald's archive with the caption reading, Mr. & Mrs. Pietro Ferrante on Sept. 13, 1951 in Monterey. We all know that Pietro Ferrante was one of the pioneers in the commercial fishing industry in Monterey. He lived from 1867 to 1954. What I need to know is the name of his wife sitting next to him. Feel free to add your information to the comments section.
