Women in Slums

We wrap up Slum Week with this picture of women in the slums near the US capitol in Washington DC. Again, fairly filthy conditions, with a lot of trash and debris.


  1. When we were children, My Mama often, had us out cleaning the yard. She said that people passing by saw a messy yard, they would think we lived in a filthy house. One we threw all the trash, we picked up, under the house. It came a big rain storm and washed it out. We didn't do that again.

  2. and yet there is a coat with a fir collar.

  3. Not ideal but I see houses like that around still - people simply lazy.
