How the Other Half Lives by Jacob Riis

The bottom video is a collection of a number of Jacob Riis' pictures narrated with the writing by a reading of his writing (by teacher "Mr. Holt.").  If you would prefer short snippets of his pictures, you can go to NPR and Picture History for individual photos.   The video on top is from the History Channel and tells the story of the impact of the pictures.
