Crocheted and fur

Here you still see women wearing fur. This coat appears very old, and its wearer isn't so young. I imagine she may have crocheted the shawl she's wearing over the coat.  Times are hard....she rummaged through the dumpster just out of my photo near the pigeons.

What a poignant photo! She probably has a number of tales to tell. From the coat and the boots and the shawl, I'd guess that at one time she didn't worry about finding enough food.
