H7135 Italian knife sharpener who has [had] a little place on West 20th
St. between 5th and 6th Ave on the sidewalk for a long time. Everyone knows
him. He has his steady customers from all the restaurants in this locality
for whom he sharpens the knives, and from the sweatshops he receives
scissors to grind. This picture was taken when he was examining a broken
scissor from a customer, New York

teacher, up the winding steps, back to their room. This picture shows when
they returned, New York

ten minutes waiting, New York
H7138 Italian knife sharpener. This nice old man has a little stand with
his machine on the sidewalk on 20th St. between 5th and 6th Ave., where he
grinds daily the knives for the restaurants and the scissors for the
sweatshops. He has his steady customers in this locality as he is well
liked and does his work good. This picture was taken after he had examined
the broken scissors and told his customer the cost of mending it, New York
H7139 Pushcarts and stands in Mulberry Street. This section between Bayard
St. and North Street to the south and Canal St. to the north in Mulberry
St. is occupied entirely by Italians where on(e) can see daily one pushcart
after another close together and lined on both sides of the streets, New
H7140 This is 71 Mulberry Street, an Italian Eating House. The owner of
this can be seen standing in a commanding way. He kept the crowd and one
policeman back until I had finished to take this photograph. On one side
of his place a woman has a pile of grape fruit piled on the sidewalk and on
the other side of his place is a fish market, New York
H7207 North Atchison, Kansas, looking north and showing something of the
make-up of the town and very little of its business activity
H7216 General view over business section and part of best residence
district of Atchison from the Mangelsdorf Grain Elevator. The town has a
population of 17,000 and there are many churches, but they are not really
equipped to meet the demands of the community for all around Christian
development. Atchison, Kansas
H7217 Bethany Methodist Episcopal Hospital, perhaps the most outstanding feature of
Methodism in Kansas. There are 250 beds and the hospital is a great power
for good in the community. In 1917 Bethany took care of over 2,000
patients. It is a thoroughly modern institution and cost $325,000. Kansas
H7218 Wesley Methodist Episcopal Church. This little mission church is in a growing
community filled with well paid workers in the mills and packing houses,
but who are hard hit by the requirments that they buy bonds and subscribe
to all war activities liberally. The membership is 150 and there is no
other Protestant Church anywhere in the neighborhood. The house next door
is indicative of the type of people in the nearby section of the city.

H7221 Windaro Methodist Episcopal Church. A mighty dingy light to set on a hill. It is
a disgrace to its general surroundings and doesn't meet requirements at
all. A complete social plant is greatly needed. Sunday School average
attendance over 200, almost impossible to seat them. Only Protestant
Church in population of 4,000. Kansas City, Kansas
H7222 Central Ave. Methodist Episcopal Church. Effective membership 1003 Sunday School
average attendance over 500. The primary department must be held in old
church in rear, which is a menace to health. The U.S. Gov't has ordered
the completion of the Central Ave. viaduct from Kansas City No. which will
immediately multiply the usefullness and the opportunity of this church. A
fine completely equipped social and community centre church should be built
here at once to cost $70,000 or $80,000 if we are to in any reasonable
degree, be effective in this field. Kansas City, Kansas
H7223 Grace Methodist Episcopal Church unable to build more than the basement. This
church is a rapidly expanding community and should receive immediate help
to make it the community centre it should be. There is no place for social
activities and but one public playground in the entire town which has a
population of 40,000. Kansas City, Kansas
H7224 London Heights Methodist Episcopal Church. Totally inadequate to meet the needs -
The Sunday School overflows into the street. Not a single need of the
community can be met in more than meager fashion. Kansas City, Kansas

H7803 A "Model Kitchen." This house, formerly a barn, was made into a
comfortable home by putting in windows which cannot be opened. Two beds
accomodating 5 men show signs of overwork. See negative envelope for more
facts. Ford Motor Company - Detroit, MI
H7804 A home in the Roumanian Quarter. Really a cellar used as living
room, kitchen, and sleeping quarter of several Roumanians. The only
ventilation is the small window near the ceiling
H7805 This shows what many Ford Co. employees have done for themselves.
This Serbian had paid a few dollars on a vacant lot, built this tar papered
shack and was living here with his family practically destitute when he was
hired by the Ford Motor Company. With his pay of $5 a day be bought lumber
and built with his own hands the home shown in the lower picture. A
comfortable healthy home for "Young America" he was bringing up.
H7806 A home in Serbian Quarter. This house is a six room frame building
[with] no toilet or bath. There are 3 double beds each in living and
dining rooms. Twelve men sleep in these rooms alone beside the night shift
men, one of whom is seen asleep. Detriot, Michigan

H7808 The first of three different stages of Home building by a Ford Motor
Company employee in the short space of 15 months. This home of a man,
wife, and 5 children at the time the Profit Sharing Plan went into effect.
He has been an employee of the company about 8 months. He had purchased a
lot upon which mostly mostly by his own hands he had erected this shack
after [regular] working hours. He was meeting a debt to Lumber Company by
paying $20 monthly
H7809 Second Home is an enlargement of the original shack by addition of 2
buildings join. The home now consists of 4 rooms without gas, electricity
or running water - not palatial, but considered improvement.
H7810 Third Home, October 1914. He traded the old property for the new
modern well appointed cottage [with], electricity, bath, etc. and valued at
$2800.00. He has paid up $1100.00 and a bank holds a mortgage for the
remaining $1700.00. This house has been furnished throughout with a good
grade of furniture and house furnishings which are nearly all paid for.
H7811 First home of employee, his wife, and 5 children. Imagine the life
of a mother endeavoring to bring 5 small children whose ages range from 7
months to 16 years through a winter in this shack. When the Profit Sharing
Plan was adopted, our investigator found this employee paying $5 monthly
for his home.
H7813 The part of the home known as the "back yard" illustrating that all
people do not have the same respect for it they should. What a constrast
to that of a thrifty American, where every inch is kept clean, a small
garden laid out and grass upon which the children can play. Is it
ignorance or indolence which shows here? We hope ignorance so he may be
taught to utilize this place to greater advantage.
H7814 Typical conditions prior to Profit Sharing. A room used as bedroom,
living room, dining room, and kitchen. A complete home in one room houses
a man, wife, and four boarders and a baby with no privacy for the family.
Imagine the view of and the attitude towards life that the child brought up
in such environment must have. Is it any wonder they leave a home like
this for anything no matter how immoral or crimminal?
H7812 This shows the second home of employee who after receiving his share
of profits a few months, bought 2 lots and built this substantial home
where he and his family now live. Just as great changes have taken place
inside the life of the family, new furniture, new clothes, health,
H7815 Another picture of same room as H7814. This is used as dining room.
Benches are used for chairs. The victrolia on left shows these people
lovers of music. While room is overheated from large stove, ventilation
poor, and damp from constantly dying of clothes overhead. The room beyond
is used by a separate family and boarders.
H7816 What Profit Sharing has done for this man. The small building is the
rear and the new home shows the effect of 14 mo of Profit Sharing. Value of
this property today $2,600. The man, wife and child now have a cosy
comfortable, well built house modern in all its approvements.
H7817 Miss Bessie Smith, deaconess working in connection with Centenary
Methodist Episcopal Church and two of her Polish charges. The mother crippled with

Hungarians 10,000 Poles, 3 [out], thousand Americans and some Italians.

home and school, and so his mother makes him wear a girl's dress in which
he is ashamed to appear on the street with his fellows so he improvises a
playhouse seen in H7822.
