||ILASCO, MO - Although the woman in the
picture is unidentified, this picture is an excellent example of the
company housing located at the Pump House in LeBaume Hollow. There
were two rows of buildings totally 16 houses, all identical. As seen
here some of them had fenced in back yards where they raised chickens or
planted small gardens. The house pictured would have rented from the
company for $7.00 a month just like all of its neighbors.
