Slum corrals built in 1913
Slum-corrals built in 1913 and occupied continuously since then. The twenty two units now rent for $5.50 monthly each. Six outdoor flush type toilets and one shower are provided for the more than one hundred people. there was no evidence of my regular repair or maintenance work by the landlord; however the interiors were neat and clean and many tenants had painted the inside walls, repaired screens, etc.
