Carlo Baccino (aka “Carlèn”) was born in Giusvalla on May 23, 1903 and was a son of Carlo Baccino and Marì Camoirano. By the time Carlèn arrived at Squirrel Run in 1921, the heyday of the powder mills along the Brandywine was dwindling. Within two years, the powder mills closed and Carlo went back to Giusvalla for good.

The month before Carlèn, another young Giusvallèn arrived at Squirrel Run - Carlo Ferraro (aka “Cide-Yes”) .... but he deserves a story of his own.
