What I’m Reading: Silver Like Dust – 39 in a series – “…no interior walls had been built, so the studs and plywood were visible…”

September 3rd, 2019

“Inside, it was sparse and dark. The floors were made of long, rough-cut boards, and there was no insulation whatsoever. In fact, no interior walls had been built, so the studs and plywood were visible. A small black coal stove stood in one corner, and three cots with thin pinstriped mattresses were the only furniture. A plain light hung from the ceiling, tossing a faint yellow glow upon the room. On one side, a small window let in the last red rays of the setting sun.”

From  Silver Like Dust by Kimi Cunningham Grant

What I'm Reading: Those were hakujin beaches. Whites-only beaches.
