1906. "Cossitt Library and Post Office, Memphis, Tennessee." This Romanesque castle in red sandstone, at Front and Monroe on the banks of the Mississippi, was the city's first public library when it opened in 1893.
Amelia County, Virginia, in the early 1960s. Sunday dinner at the Miller house, with the farm of Marvin and Thelma Warriner in the background.
June 1943. Arlington County, Va. "Arlington Farms, war duration residence halls. Laundry room in Idaho Hall."
September 1938. "WPA (Works Progress Administration) worker's children with toys in their play yard. South Charleston, West Virginia."
From September 1938, a reminder of the days when doing laundry meant hauling water from a well or spigot, then boiling it in a caldron over a fire: "Old and sick, mine foreman's wife does washing in front yard. South Charleston, W.Va."
Summer 1936. "William Tengle, son of cotton sharecropper. Near Moundville, Hale County, Alabama."
June 1943. "Arlington, Virginia. Girl getting food in the service shop at Idaho Hall, Arlington Farms, a residence for women who work for the U.S. government for the duration of the war. The shop help is run on a self-service basis."
Circa 1906. "Southern Railway station, Knoxville, Tenn." What has four faces but no hands?
September 1938. "Home of old and sick mine foreman and WPA worker and their families. Charleston, W.Va."
New Orleans circa 1937. "Courtyard, 620-621 Gov. Nicholls Street." Potted plants and underpants.
