1870 - Third Floor
Shafer Family
All the Shafers are New York-born but of German descent. Adolph (age 48) owns a shooting gallery, while his wife, Evelein, is a dressmaker. Charles and John are laborers. This morning the household activities are well along. John is about to carry the slops down to the backyard privy, Margaret is diapering the baby, and Louis is using the chamber pot.
