Orphans' homestead, Gettysburg, Pa. The building, now newly roofed and adapted as far as practicable for its present use, was occupied by Gen. Howard as his head quarters at the battle of Gettysburg. It stands on Cemetery Hill, within a few rods of the vertex of the angle formed by our army in the battle. It is used until a more commodious and suitable structure can be erected to shelter its present fatherless inmates, with many other soldiers' orphans in different States of the Union, awaiting admission to the institution / / Photographed by C.J. Tyson, Gettysburg.

The shelter for the babies of the Creche put up and supported by the American Red Cross at La Panne, Belgium. Fifty babies from the danger zone were cared for in the Creche.

Rolain-Hyman the directrice of the Creche leaving the shelter with one of the babies

Pals amid the ruins. These two friends live at Fresnes, one of the ruined towns of France. Every house of the town is in ruins, but the widowed mother of the little boy has made a shelter in the ruins of their former home and the boy and dog cuddle up close to each other on cold nights to keep themselves warm. The Junior Red Cross of America sent this little boy and all the others in Fresnes good sweaters last fall and the winter passed without any of them being seriously ill. Life in the devasted towns is severe even on the elders, because of the lack of proper shelter, clothing and food, but for the children it is particularly severe, and a sweater will often save a life

Miscellaneous design. In the course of reservoir construction the Authority occasionally floods out existing railroad lines which it replaces, together with their bridges and stations. This small station at Concord, Tennessee, is notable principally for its total deviation from usual practice for such structures in the Valley, chiefly in its clear cut plan, open shelter, light brick masonry, and the use of bright colors

Visitors' overlook building at Kentucky Dam. This structure is in the form of an open shed because the other functions of TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) visitors' buildings being accommodated in the nearby construction village, there was need for shelter only at this point. Since the project is in a hot climate, ample ventilation is promoted by the open front, a balustrade height opening toward the back underneath the display and grilles to ventilate the roof space. Most of the displays are arranged as transparencies, with natural illumination during the day, and with floodlights used as substitutes during the night
