21. I can't tell you how many relatives I visited growing up who lived in large homes converted to...

multi-family dwellings during the Depression in the Midwest. It seemed like all of them.

I don't know if any had previously been mansions, but, they all had a central stair/hallway. Pretty much the pattern was two 'apartments' upstairs and two on the lower floor with a shared bathroom and kitchen area in the back. Which was where the kitchen was typically located in those houses.

One of my great-aunties thought she had it good, because, she was occupying the former parlor and living room area on the ground floor. Which was basically one large room with an opening in the middle where the doors had been removed.

I only had one great-uncle who lived in the stereotypical 'flop house' long term hotel for the remainder of his life.

Of course, most of this is totally unnecessary and resulted from the Republicans and Trump cronies stealing and misusing the PPP.
