Bakersfield CA '35 ~
I have seen shanty shacks in Tiajuana, but I didn't realize housing needs were this bad in the U.S. During the "dirty thirties" I guess. I am counting how fortunate I am to live in these days.

I did, but I wasn't sure it was the same one as today. I'm not familiar with that address. BTW, how did their "Famous fried chicken" become famous?
Source said pics were from between '15 and '21; I medianed.
This is my wife's great aunt. She lived in Golconda, Ill. She owned the Maxwell, and used it to deliver the mail.She was married twice. She was down to earth, and independent, and moved by herself to Chicago once for a job, and to Akron, Ohio during WW II to work in a rubber plant. My wife met her (and her mother, they are a long lived family) 2 or 3 times when she (my wife) was a little girl.
The first photo is labeled on the back, pattern department Navy yard Nov. 24 1914. The second one is labeled pattern shop Washburn shops Worcester Tech I googled the name, and found that this was part of the Worcester Polytechnic Institute. From their website:'WPI’s second building, Washburn Shops, was built in 1868 and constructed under the supervision of WPI co-founder Ichabod Washburn, owner of the world’s largest wire mill. In line with Washburn’s vision of teaching students technical skills through apprenticeship, the building was conceived of as a working manufacturing plant, complete with a boiler, engine room, and blacksmith shop. There, thousands of WPI students learned woodworking and ironworking and made products for sale under the tutelage of professional mechanics."They still teach manufacturing engineering and materials science in the building. The 3rd photo is not labeled.
