Meal Time: 1930s

Meal Time: 1930s

A group of girls posing for a photo, before being transported to a dinner meal at the Peoria, Illinois, Neighborhood House, which delivered meals to the elderly and fed children in a cafeteria.

The girls 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 mid-1930s. The Hiram Walker & Sons Distillery plant can be seen in the background. Picture taken by an unknown employee of the Neighborhood House.
