This is Elisabeth, aka "Mamaw" in her kitchen in Richmond, Virginia, stirring the pasta water. She was always in her kitchen cooking. She was raised in Little Italy, New York City before moving to Portsmouth, Virginia. She met Ernesto Noviello from Montefalcione, Italy in Portsmouth, Virginia. They were married on the 26th of October 1919. I took this photo back in the mid 1970s and told her to stir something. She stirred the almost boiling pasta water.
Ernest changed his name to Novello.
