A snapshot of life from New York, circa 1910.

A black and white photograph from 1910, taken by Lewis Hine, depicting daily life in a New York City tenement. Two women and three children are present; one woman is sitting with a baby on her lap, another stands with a young child beside her, and a toddler sits on bedding on the ground. Laundry hangs on lines stretched across the alleyway between brick buildings, conveying a sense of domestic life in a dense urban environment.
