Lisa at Exploding Aardvark has found an online version of Jacob Riis's 1890 study of the New York tenements, How the Other Half Lives, which includes his magnificent and historically priceless photographs. It's the world my grandparents were born into, and just about unimaginable now, except in rare glimpses like this one.
