Interior view of female workers' housing. An elaborately carved chest stands against the wall to the left. On its right, a bed appears through a doorway to a small room. Above the bed, some of the plaster has come off the wall, revealing boards. To the right of the doorway to the bedroom are two wooden chairs. An oval washtub hangs from the wall in the corner. On the right wall is an entrance door. To the right of the door, a tall, narrow piece of furniture is covered with patterned cloth. On the wall above hang a large painting of the Holy Family and a smaller print of figures in more contemporary clothing, both in elaborate frames.
