I found this image of New York City from the early 1900's on Google Images.
Our first book club selection takes place in New York City in the winter at about the time this photo was taken. I thought I would share this photo and give you an idea of what New York looked like in Samantha's time.
Times were also very hard for the poor working class families in New York in the 1900's, this photo also from Google images shows a family assembling artificial flowers in their tenement (small one room rental apartments) this photo does not show any joy, which is something the poor working class did not have much of.
I am looking forward to sharing more with you as we get closer to starting our first book
As with all my posts I would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
