Mrs. Guadina, living in a rear house at 231 Mulberry St. N.Y., a dirty poverty-stricken home, and making a pittance by finishing pants. On the trunk is the work of four days. She was struggling along, (actually weak for want of food) trying to finish this batch of work so she could get the pay. There seemed to be no food in the house and she said the children had had no milk all day. The father is out of work (sells fish) on account of rheumatism. Three small children and another expected soon.  Location: New York, New York (State)
