Original caption: "San Bruno, California. Barracks for family living quarters. Each door enters into a family unit of two small rooms. The center was opened just two days before this picture was taken. The people shown in this photograph have just arrived and are occupying themselves with building benches, chairs, tables, and shelves, for their belongings, from scrap lumber. Quarters are equipped with only a bed and a mattress for each person."
