Today's picture was taken in 1938 in Central Ohio. it shows a desperately poor man and his child. notice how the exterior of his home is covered by cardboard to serve as a wind break and some modest level of insulation. When I was growing up in the 60's people were still living in houses like this. The little town I grew up in had a Barrio, and it was filled with this sort of scene.
