Poverty bedroom

0701 bed, Susannah Place
Originally uploaded by rooruu.
This is from one of the houses at Susannah Place - they were working class houses, this bedroom also had a double bed in it and the room was shared by 3 sisters at one time. One of them remembered that they were not permitted candles upstairs, so she read at night by leaning out the window and using the streetlight.

(Metaphor for work: first week back is very tiring, you fall asleep VERY easily at day's end!)
