|Title||Registration for Municipal Lodging House|
|Description||From text: "Municipal Lodging House in Action. Every evening at 12 South Jefferson Street for the past eight months from 10 to 140 hungry and homeless men have stood up for registration. The police officer in charge separates this group into two lines, ""first nighters" and those previously sheltered. As the newcomer steps up to the desk the registration officer, with a pile of blank cards before him, begins his questioning. Name and age, place of birth, length of residence in the state and city, occupation, with the names and addresses of his last three employers, and when and how long he worked for each--all this and more goes down in black upon the white."|
