They only had one bed for six of them to share. That would have been uncomfortable. I think the worst part of it would have been the fleas that infested the mattress. Father had to take the mattress outside and pound it with a shoe to kill some of the fleas. The fleas would have to be the worst part of living there. They would be constantly biting all parts of your body. Yuck!
