The Grigalunas Family

In 1950, the Grigalunas Family was the first family to move into the D Street Housing Development at 299 West Broadway in South Boston.  Pictured in the photo is Pauline, Joe, Tom, Mike, Rose and Joe.

Mr. Grigalunas was a milkman for Whitings Milk.  Later he owned the Pill HIll Deli at the corner of G and East Broadway.
