Description
Elevated view of Central Falls apartment homes on Fletcher St., adjacent to Jenks Park. Many of Central Falls' triple-deckers were built during the 1880-1890s due to a rise of mill workers coming to the city. They were sold and landlorded upon in a similar fashion to their use now for poor and small families garnering work in the area. Living space within most triple-deckers were limited but decorated heavily within, including a large curved staircase.
