  1. Perhaps the photo may have also been taken to document “blight” as part of the upcoming SW Urban Renewal area project that wiped out that ethnic neighborhood.

  2. I lived in a hotel with (HSKP) housekeeping rooms. Many of the people were permanent residents. My mother took care of all the housekeeping. The linens were sent out, and she made the beds for the rooms that turned over. I’m not certain, but I think the other people made their own beds. I lived there from 1954-1965. In those years I only remember one woman residing in the hotel.
