Worker cottages

You know how I love my dilapidated buildings.. and with a news peg!

St. Wenceslaus Catholic Church is reflected in the window of a flood-damaged cottage across the street on Wednesday, June 9, 2010, in Cedar Rapids. The city is set to demolish the cottages, citing them as a threat to public safety, but Preservation Iowa is seeking an emergency grant to move and rehabilitate them. The cottages were built to house immigrant workers at the Sinclair meatpacking plant and other factories.
