Children looking out of trailer window.

Trailer where C.E. Childre and family live on highway about three miles from Fort Benning. He is an auto mechanic and came up to Columbus, Georgia two weeks ago from Albany, Georgia and now works at Columbus Motor Company. They couldn't find any other place to live so had to get a trailer. They pay two dollars a week for space in W.T. Mullis' backyard. Never lived in a trailer before, don't like it, difficult with children and wet weather.

December 1940
