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.
