Title: A row of houses and pit privies
Description: A row of houses and pit privies in the Molinas addition which is adjacent to the municipal airport and outside the city limits. Electricity and running water were available but few houses had sewer connections; most had running water either in the house or at a nearby outdoor faucet; some had electricity. The pattern for privies was haphazard--some houses had an individual privy; some privies were used by three or four family groups. Corpus Christi, Texas.
