Title: Front yards at Wiggins Homes
Description: Front yards at Wiggins Homes, a 158 unit public low rent housing project. Wiggins Homes were originally restricted to Anglos; in 1948 the Corpus Christi Public Housing Authority opened this project to Latin-Americans. Some Anglos moved to other housing projects; some Anglos with above maximum incomes moved to private housing. Wiggins Homes is now almost exclusively occupied by Latins but at no time has there been conflict, according to the Corpus Christi Public Housing Authority. Corpus Christi, Texas.
