Title: Lights slated to go off in veterans' project

Mother seated in armchair between her husband and son, who wear bed clothes and hold candles and candlesticks; mother reading magazine and wearing dress with pearl necklace. Caption on verso: "Lights Slated To Go Off In Veterans' Projects: In the Manhattan Beach Housing Project, where utilities were to be cut off at 12:01 a.m., Mrs. Rose Anne Friedman was still making good use of the electricity long past midnight. Her husband, David J., and son, Ira, are prepared with candles. The same situation prevails at the Marine Park Veterans Housing Project, where up to daybreak the edict had not taken effect as yet."
