Marino worked with two of his brothers, Carlo and another (maybe Boris) and several of their sons (one of Boris'). They built the Italian Hall (9 -11 Recreation Road) behind the Church of Christ in Mount Clear. Quite a big concreting firm of the era. Worked closely with council doing street kerbing.(1)
