Attention Colorizers

If anybody is considering colorizing this photo, remember - this is Georgia. Those feet, hands, and clothes are going to have beautiful red, Georgia clay hues.

Unchanged

Those electric meters look exactly the same as the one on my house, almost 70 years later.

Quadruplex

This must have been a multi-family dwelling, since I see four separate electric meters.

[Possibly the "A.C." (alternating current) of the caption. -Dave]

Yes, but ...

Admittedly, it leaves much to be desired as a human residence, but it must have been the Taj Mahal of chicken coops.

Five children

The little girl is wearing the same jacket in both photos, and appears to be the same age. So the time between photos can't be too long. The boy holding the tire in the photo above and the older boy in the other photo is not the same person.

[The photos were taken on the same day. -Dave]
