Children Sleeping in Mulberry Street (Street Arabs in Sleeping Quarters), New York, NY, USA, c.1889. (Colorized).

Making the most out of a warm spot on a snow-covered street, homeless barefoot boys sleep piled atop a grated vent hole on Manhattan's lower east side. Based on the original image by Jacob Riis, from the Jacob A. Riis Collection (#123), Museum of the City of New York. Processed and colorized by Kelly Short using Gimp 2.6.11.
