Above is the house in PA that my husband lived in from age 5 to age 16. These photos are from Google Earth and Google took them in 2014.. The house was called a twin, what we now call a townhouse or duplex. They lived in the side with the steps and his bed was in the attic room under the the peaked roof, his 1 brother 3 sisters and parents crammed in the 2nd floor.
He and his family worked in this factory that is directly across the street from the house, from 1941 to 1952 when his dad died.
Each night the family cleaned the factory after it closed. Bob's job at 6 years old, was to push the big broom to clean all the threads and material that fell from the sewing machines. They made men's suits. His mother sewed on the collars during the day, then went home to cook the evening meal, while her husband and 5 kids worked across the street. His dad was a police officer by day.
Since he worked from age 6 to 62, he took early retirement.And kids today think they have it rough.
