|Title||Acor family in crowded apartment, Seattle, ca. 1940 |
|Date||ca. 1940 |
|Caption||According to Seattle city directories, George Acor and his family lived in an apartment on Spring Street in the early 1940s. Mr. Acor was a janitor, and his wife ran a coffee shop. A Seattle Post-Intelligencer photographer visited the Acors' apartment and also accompanied the family to an apartment at the new Yesler Terrace development. Yesler Terrace was the city's first low-income housing project.|
This photo, taken in the early 1940s, shows Dorothy Acor reaching for dry laundry in the family's crowded apartment on Spring Street. Her husband George holds some of the clothing while their two children, Dorothy Mary and George Junior, sit nearby on the bed.
|Notes||Handwritten on sleeve: Acor, George (& wife), also with children, Dorothy Mary and George James jr., inspect Yesler Terrace (slum clearance project).|
