Before New Shoes: 1930s

Before New Shoes: 1930s

A group of children posing for a photo before being outfitted with new shoes and dinner from the Neighborhood House social service agency. The kids lived in the slums at Cinder Point between the Railroad and Illinois River, at the foot of Sanger Street, nearby the Flatboat City locale, Peoria, Illinois, circa 1933-1937.

The Neighborhood House Association, 1020 S. Matthew, Peoria IL, established in 1896, is dedicated to providing a Safe Haven with comprehensive services that meet the social, emotional and material needs of individuals and families from infancy to the elderly.
