The article from Lexington, Kentucky doesn’t say a lot. This is what it said.
It was titled “What to Eat”, and first starts out by saying, the Christmas number of What to Eat is full of pertinent holiday matter, then goes on to talk about food for Christmas and Congress might be acting on the food question and the Drink Habit Among Women. The part of the article pertaining to pizza only says: Mascagni and his favorite dish “Pizza Neapolitana” is timely topic in Genie H. Rosenfeld’s “Notes Drama Dramatic.”. Margaret Rayburn tells what the New York shops hold for Christmas shoppers. I don’t know if Genie H. Rosenfeld’s “Notes Dramatic” or recorded anywhere or not. At the end of the article it says The Pierce Publishing Company, Chicago.
Thanks for your explanation about where Southern Italian immigrated to. In the relation to the Boston article and the one from the New York Tribune, they are both saying almost the same things, but are years apart. I wonder why that is.
Thanks also for finding out about Lupo’s, which is now Tommaso’s. I didn’t know anything about them before. It is interesting that Lupo’s opened only two years after Pasty Lancieri started slinging pies out of coal-fried oven in East Harlem.
When I was searching more last evening, I had to chuckle when I searched Roman cheese in New York Tribune papers. I only can guess that is what they must have used on their pizzas, but there was a funny article about someone stealing the expensive Roman cheese and the police search for the Roman cheese. They did finally find it after a few days, and the person was arrested. The police said their noses led them to the Roman cheese. I wonder what that smelled like.
While doing searches for pushcarts, wagon carts and other things in the New York Tribune, there are articles about Italian immigrants selling spaghetti on the carts and also images. I also searched Little Italy and saw pictures of what street carts looked like back so many years ago, how health inspectors were concerned, and how many blocks the street carts were on. When I have time, I will try to search for where the pizza was made on Grand St.
Thanks for all your research.
Looking forward to finding out more.
