These homes look lived in up to the end (late 30's) judging by some of the decor. Remember, these photos are taken through dirty windows.
The rattan style chair I found interesting as not something you'd picture in a desert mining town.
Same view looking up. The ceiling light looks much like one we would see today in Home Depot for $9.95
Same room off to the left. Hooks everywhere to hang you hat and coat.
Different home. This cloth which looks like a muslin fabric was commonplace in many of the houses. It was on the outside of the buildings also where it was more like a light canvas covering. I'll have photos of that later.
Here not much is left of the wallpaper. The cloth may have been an necessary underlayment for wallpaper to adhere to as no doubt there's been advances in wall coverings since then.
This home was easy to imagine someone living here right to the end, maybe his own end, who knows? He could have died in his sleep right there on that bed. That is a Sylvania radio tube box on the dresser to the right. In back on the night stand sets a lunch box and Thermos bottle.
The neighbor buried ol' Zeke and left his home just as it was.
Except he took the mattress in the guest room as it was better than his own.
Zeke wouldn't mind.
