On single-room occupancy

This is a nice photo-article about the transition of housing stock in the US, from an abundance of rentable beds and single rooms, to an idealized standard of a single-family home.  This was a fascinating read for me, because I grew up in a neighborhood that went from having at least five SROs I can recall in a square mile, to having none.

I've long thought of creating new SRO-type housing in Chicago, and this article keeps me inspired to do so.
