    He has over 1056 images in the collection and after looking through them present the images of i picked out for you.
    It is rather rare to find so much in one place of a chef .

    so here we go.

    Domino Danzero was born January 13, 1871, in a small town near Turin, Italy, to Giacomo and Angela Danzero. Upon immigrating to the United States at the age of 19, he held a variety of jobs before becoming a chef for the Harvey House restaurant chain, associated with the St. Louis & San Francisco (“Frisco”) Railroad Company. Domino’s position as chef and later as restaurant supervisor allowed him to utilize his photography skills, as he documented the communities and landscape along the Frisco line. From about 1900-1908, Danzero travelled between St. Louis and Galveston, Texas. He had special permission from Harvey House management to stop trains in order to photograph the local area. Domino met Bridget Roetto from Monett, Mo., while working for the Harvey House. They married in August of 1902 and made their home in Rogers, Ark. Bridget became his trusted business associate and helped manage the various businesses Domino founded throughout their 50-year marriage. They had two daughters; Angelina, born in 1903, and Leola, born in 1907. The family settled in Springfield, Mo., in 1907

    Awesome story steeley. He was quite the entrepreneur. Not too bad of a photographer either! Do you know if any of these brands survive today?
