Different views of slums in the vicinity of Tenth and Packer Streets in Philadelphia. Laundry hanging on clotheslines. Information accompanying image HA15004 tells a story of a fire from a ""bungalow"" (a make-shift frame structure 20 X 30 feet with a tar-papered roof and an unpaved street) in South Philadelphia which took the lives of two children. The fire was probably started from a portable oil-stove. The fire code requirements were changed in Jan. 1954.
