Inspired by the urban street photography featured in "Street Seen: The Psychological Gesture in American Photography 1940-1959" at the Milwaukee Art Museum, I will share a snapshot of a Milwaukee landmark each day for the 10 days leading up to "MAM After Dark"on March 12.
Yesterday's photo: Glorioso Bros. Italian Foods
For all the transition on Brady Street, Glorioso Bros. Italian Foods, 1020 E. Brady St., has simply stayed the same. Opened in 1946, brothers Joe, Eddie and Ted Glorioso have worked side by side for over 60 years to run the most authentic and fully stocked Italian deli and grocery in town.
For years, they've sought to import only the finest in traditional Italian cheeses, meats, olive oils and balsamic vinegars to give immigrants and locals a chance to re-create familial dishes from the "mother country." This Milwaukee landmark will soon be empty as Glorioso's makes the big move across the street to the former Brady Pharmacy.

OnMilwaukee.com staff writer Maureen Post grew up in Wauwatosa. A lover of international and urban culture, Maureen received a bachelor’s degree in sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
After living on the east side of Madison for several years, Maureen returned to Milwaukee in 2006.
After a brief stint of travel, Maureen joined OnMilwaukee.com as the city’s oldest intern and has been hooked ever since. Combining her three key infatuations, Milwaukee’s great music, incredible food and inspiring art (and yes, in that order), Maureen’s job just about fits her perfectly.
Residing in Bay View, Maureen vehemently believes the city can become fresh and new with a simple move across town.
