Concha Cuevas, 1959


Taken in 1959, this photograph includes Concha Cuevas, Nana Bernal, Martha Guerrero and her brother Adolfo Cuevas in what Guerrero describes as a typical scene at their home on the 1800 block of Racine. Guerrero’s family lived in the basement and her Nana lived on the second floor. Cuevas and Bernal shared the same caring spirit as Cuevas supported single mothers by providing care for their children throughout the years. Guerrero says, “To this day many of these now young adults remember her and miss her.”
