On the left is a man who goes by the name Old School. I’m guessing he acquired his street name because he likes to sing old Motown songs. Old School has been living on the streets for six months. This is his second time becoming homeless. At age sixty two the chances of him getting back on his feet are greatly reduced. He said he has problems with people stealing his belongings, and the thing that gets stolen most often is his phone. He lost contact with his son because of it, and doesn’t know how he’ll get in touch with him again.
