Keys to History
In this relatively late photograph (1925), the house on the right is probably about ten years old, but the triplexes on the left are more recent. The owners often lived on the ground floor of these houses and rented the apartments above, which provided them with revenue. As for the tenants, whether they were born in the city or had come from the country, these brand-new apartments, with electricity and bathrooms, were often a source of satisfaction, and even pride.
