Nick Grillo, as a boy in Italy, dreamed of America and its opportunity, Southington, Connecticut. He saved enough money for boat passage to this country. Today, after 22 years, he is one of the world’s outstanding flori-culturists, developer of the famous “Thornless Rose,” an age-old dream of his craft.

One of 1600 rare color photos from the Great Depression were compiled by the Farm Services Administration from 1939 and 1944. Available here: http://www.loc.gov/pictures/collection/fsac/
