All over the world, communities have had to find ways of Coping with Poverty.

I don't have any postcards of Hooverville (the Depression-era tent/shanty city in New York's Central Park) or of soup kitchen lines or ...

... but along came a "Breton wedding party - the beggars' meal // and the corner to the dishes", which is a clumsy translation of "Ure Noce bretonne - La Repas des Mendiants // et le coin a la vaisselle" that I am sure one/more of you can smooth-out.

Q/ Do you have any postcards of any other community Coping with Poverty?

Cheers,

/s/ ikeyPikey

Interesting card - I like the piles of what looks like dirty dishes in the corner. I never encountered the term Mendicant before.
