Victorian Slum House

WOW, I thought that my times in my upstate Ny home were rough with no furnace, with having to bail the septic weekly every winter, to be without a working toilet for over 2 years, contracting Beaver Fever, and so many other calamities that befell us, but it was a picnic compared to these conditions. We had a comfortable bed, we were cold all winter but we had shelter and food. So much to be thankful for. If you can watch this and see what ancestors had to go through starting in 1860, it is worthwhile.
Thank you to Jeannie  for the recommendation.. Wow..
If this doesn't make all of us appreciate what we have, then maybe living like this or like I did for a while would change that pretty quick. LOL.
