 Title  Quackser Fortune Has a Cousin in the Bronx
The 1960's were a great transition period for Dublin. The modern ideas of the UK and the US swept down upon the city and dragged it, kicking and screaming, into a new age. As the title suggests, when times get though you can always go to America, especially if you already have relatives there. But, this young Dublin entrepreneur just needs a little time to find a way to fit into the new beat of the city.

Perfectly depicted are the living conditions of the blue-collar worker's family. Notice the darkly lit Council-house, which only has windows in the front and the back. And the back yard contains a chicken coop and an outhouse.
