Description

"Ubiquitous triple-deckers," in Providence, as noted by Professor Smolski. This area of South Providence was identified as a "blighted" neighborhood in the 1970s, and much of it, including the neighborhood in this image, has since been demolished and redeveloped as part of Women and Infant's hospital and parking lots.
