Questions for Photo 1

1. What does the size of this house indicate about the family's economic status?

2. Look back at Reading 2, where Rose Kennedy describes four rooms. Where do you think those rooms were within the house? Why?

* The image on the screen has a resolution of 72 dots per inch (dpi), and therefore will print poorly. You can obtain a high resolution version of Photo 1 but be aware that it will take about 30 seconds to load with a 28.8K modem.
