Children of the mill workers of Holyoke, Massachusetts, 1941

The kids play in safety in the FHA (Federal Housing Administration) low income housing project.

Plenty of room to hang laundry.

Balsa wood airplane, comic book. Must be Saturday!

This girl's mother is Lithuanian and her father is Polish.

There is plenty of fresh air and sunlight here at the housing project.
