Color portrait of Daniel Anastasio, a blacksmith's helper for the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Railroad at Blue Island, Illinois, in 1943, taken for the Farm Security Administration-Office of War Information. (The surname is spelled "Anastazia" in Library of Congress records.) His obituary indicates that he also worked as a fireman for the Rock Island. Anastasio (1896-1973) was born in Italy, and, like many immigrants from many countries, ended up working for the railroad. If railroads changed the world (and the United States), then immigrants like Anastasio deserve much of the credit for their construction and maintenance and for helping win World War II. Anastasio was married to Elizabeth Senise, likely a member of a larger Senise railroad family in Blue Island, also recorded, but in greater detail, by photographer Jack Delano.
