Condemned_Housing_1972_10.jpg

June 1972—Illegal Housing—Following a tip from a social worker, we found migrant families living in a condemned house on a Ceres farm.  We talked to the residence and they wanted the landowner to repair the house.  After we visited these families the landowner heard about our visit then they evicted the migrants and quickly demolished several condemned houses.   I have always felt conflicted about our visit causing the families to move and maybe to lose their income.  Photo by Al Golub/Modesto Bee
