Pictures & Politics are Tim's stories of old family photos spiced with a little politics.

My family is America's immigrant story, and luckily, they all took pictures. The family photos of the Russo & Krakowski family of Cleveland, Ohio are a Norman Rockwell painting of immigrant Cleveland's first and succeeding generations. I want to share them with all members of our very large family, and everyone else. Then, I wanna tell stories about them.

Here, we will build an online version of the community we see in those photos. Comment threads here will be all the old tales. Send me your photos, and I'll write a story about those, too. 

Now, you know me! Always had a big mouth. Loud too. You should hear me sing karaoke! My writing will get political, largely because that's who I've always been, and in our times, someone like me raises his voice. Great Grandpa would be proud. But no worries! Since these are family photos, with people I love in them, I'll be on my best behavior. Everyone always thought I'd be the priest in the family, anyway.

For $1 a month, you will get one piece per month. For $4 a month, you'll get one piece per week. We begin on Christmas Eve, Dec. 24, 2018, the first piece on the cover photo above, Great Grandpa raising a glass of Erin Brew on Christmas Day, 1948. I know that house well. 

My goal is to raise enough to pay a few monthly bills with $200 a month.
