The History Behind Kind Lady Lives Here
During the Great Depression, many men were forced to ride the rails just to survive. Travelling by boxcar from town to town was commonplace during very difficult times. To notify others that a “Kind Lady Lives Here”, a hobo would chalk or charcoal the symbol of a cat on posts, fences and barns to communicate that they might seek a meal or work at this address. Part of the “hobo code”, this symbol was significant to new arrivals seeking kindness and mindfulness without fear of judgement.
It is with this same kindness, mindfulness, and without fear of judgement that Kind Lady Lives Here strives to offer its services.
