Evansville!

My heart jumped to my throat when I saw this- I live in Evansivlle, and love this old building- it's wonderful to be able to see inside. Here're more pictures.

I believe it's still standing, and is trying to be renovated into either lofts or office space. I'll look it up

The Poor Mite

The reason it looks like that is there's lint covering up his sock (all over his pants too). He's taken off his shoes.

makes you want to cry

the poor mite has only part of a shoe / stocking. life was so cruel back then even in america
