Reggie and Fred Defeo
Rose Theresa LaMura, "Aunt Reggie", was born in Brooklyn on September 13, 1907.
In 1929, when she was 21 years old, Reggie married a 29-year-old jeweler named Alfred De Feo, known as "Fred".
Fred was born in Brooklyn around 1901. Initially, the couple lived in an apartment building at 2325 Foster Avenue in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn.
In 1931, their only child, a son named Carmine Anthony De Feo, known as "Sonny", was born.
By 1935, they had moved to another apartment building at 465 68th Street in the Bay Ridge section of Brooklyn.
The photo was taken in 1957, so Reggie is 49 years old, and Fred is 57.
