South side of Massachusetts

Another photo by Mydans shows more of the block: LC-USF33-T01-000147-M1. Childs restaurant at 2 Massachusetts Avenue is visible in the distance; so these houses are directly across from the still-standing Gales School.

Well, the listing did say it was breezy.

Nasty puddle!

I love the four little ones seated in front of their home, and the obvious care of that one unit. I'll bet that mud drove Mom crazy, though!

This house is adjoined to a deserted dump, yet someone has tried to make it homey with a couple of benches and some plants. The kids look happy and well-dressed. 1935 was a tough year.
