Old photos

My favorite houses are the ordinary homes from the early part of the twentieth century.  I've been looking at the archive of old government photos and here are some of my favorites.

This is a kitchen from Westmoreland Homesteads, which was a New Deal subsistance housing project.

 Here it is with people!

And here is the bedroom....

This is a migrant camp on the Willamette River.

I like their clothes.  Notice how the apron has no neck straps.  In those days apron bibs were pinned on.
