Residents of Dublin have frequently had their attention called to the fact that many persons in the city are badly housed. Those who live in better houses and localities know in a vague and general way that slums exist, that the poor occupy dwellings not suitable for human habitation, and that their dwellings are overcrowded. But, for the most part, the well-to-do citizens have no precise knowledge of the extent of the slums, or of the difficulties to be overcome before these slums can be replaced by suitable dwellings.
