BROOKSIDE-AGES, KY


(June 1974 U.S. National Archives image by Jack Corn)


Slightly less than ideal living conditions at Brookside. These houses were still owned by the coal company and rented to their miners in 1973. Although America had sent men to the moon by then, these homes had no running water. (1973 image from "Harlan County USA")
