The ""East Side"" of Pocahontas Country. The Aldrich home, - Buckeye, near Marlinton, W. Va. This is one of the worst homes in the county. Note the duck-coop, made out of an old trunk, - in front yard. Mother said ""The colt kicked the winders out."" She is a no-'count mountaineer from Kentucky and her husband is a shiftless farmer who has let this farm run down to worthlessness. His father ran a prosperous farm here and owned hundreds of acres but the son has run thro[ugh] it all. Typical of worst conditions in the country. Oct 6, 1921. Location: Pocahontas County--Marlinton, West Virginia
