150th Anniversary of the Birth of Joe Petrosino ...

Many thanks Giovanni for this nice cover with first day cancellation from Padula, in Southern Italy, where Joe Petrosino was born ;-)

Giuseppe "Joe" Petrosino (August 30, 1860 - March 12, 1909) was a New York City police officer who was a pioneer in the fight against organized crime. The various crime fighting techniques that Petrosino pioneered during his law enforcement career are still practiced by various agencies in the fight against crime.
