The pictures show that the slums were not a nice place to live. The living conditions didn't look nice at all.

The photographs taken by Jacob Riis shows the poverty among these people and how they lived. Not much of anything along the lines of food, personal hygiene or safety.

Rii's photos conveyed a sad feeling because it showed how many people had to live in such a small area and the amount of poverty they were living with.

Rii shows that it was hard to survive back then for blacks. The living conditions weren't great either.

These photos convey the hard times in the 1800's and the poor living conditions. having to share one-room apartment with many others and dealing with the smell and closeness was a normal thing but very appalling.

The photographs taken show the hardships that people in America in the early 1900's had to face even when they were at home. They show how hard it was to get by without having enough money to buy food, real beds, or to make repairs on the makeshift house.

New York slum dwellers. Taken about 1890, in wooden shacks in a city ally.

A crowded one-room apartment in a New York tenement in 1885.

Both of the picture were taken in New York and both of the scenery in the picture look poor.

Jacob Riis photographs imply that the people in the picture are going through hard times. With little space, barely any food or water, and too many people. I think the reason he took the photos and described them the way he did was to show the viewers the bold honesty of the situation; No lies or stretching of the truth. Just a few pictures.

Riis pictures convey how hard life was in the 1890's. It looks like they didn't have enough resources for the whole family. Families didn't have enough space in their homes and everyones looks all crowded.

These photos show the effects on immigrants neighborhoods in New York City, these immigrants had poverty, carried disease and crime. It shows how hard their life was and how they don't have much with them to live for. They live in very small houses with others and they don't have a lot of room in them because there is so many people living their.

Riis photos showed that it wasn't easy back in the 1800's, They pretty much had no resources and nothing to go off of. With those type of living conditions I am surprised that they even lived as long as they did.

Riis photos show how the living conditions were back in the late 1800's. Immigrants moving to New York City had to live in small rooms and also had to share those rooms with about 5 other poeple. They also had very few resources. It was very difficult to make it through these hard times.
