The Great Fire

A couple of years ago, one of my best employees had called me early one morning to inform me that he wasn’t coming into work. When I asked why, he said that there was a huge fire in his neighborhood ( Mt. Pleasant Wash. D.C.), and that a quarter of his block had burned down. Since his apartment building was right next door to the building that caused the fire, he and all of his neighbors were tossed out in the street. A few days later I went down to see him  and was shocked at the fact that him and all of his neighbors were still in the street. His wife and other neighbors had set up card tables in front of their building so they could at least have a place to congregate and watch their belongings while the city decided how to place them. This shot was taken in front of his building. His lovely daughter Tanya is in the one holding the doll, and his youngest son little jimmy is on the right.
