A dog would be nice

... but a dog has to be fed.

Three out of four

Three out of four kids in the photo wearing shoes - they must have dressed up for the photographer. Only the runt got away until it was too late.

Dog's aren't stupid

It's to doggone hot in those metal boxes in July! I'd bet the dogs are lounging under the trees we see in the background.

The definition of poverty then compared to now is startling. Big screen vs food.

Tough times!

How old is Mom, 26?

Not Shown

There's no dog. Four kids keeps you busy but a dog would be nice.
