Somebody's laundry dries @ Lower L. Then, note the WPA sign, @ L. Remember what that was? The Works Progress Administration put many men to work during the Great Depression, building roads, bridges, dams, and great structures, for county, state, and federal projects. WPA signs and cornerstones can still be seen on sites of the era. They employed every man the payroll could hold, but thousands of desperate hopefuls were still left standing in line. Those on Depression-era circuses at least had Cookhouse and something of a salary.
