Annie Fedele, 22 Horace Street. Somerville, Mass. Doing crochet on underwear in dirty kitchen. Said she often works here (she also sold the struls[?] as she worked) and eat out in the back yard (see other photos). The people are supposed to do the work only under certain restrictions, but when the inspector and the one who delivers the goods are not around, they do as they please. A good illustration of the difficulty in trying to regulate Home Work. See also Home Work report. Location: Somerville, Massachusetts.
