Teles Bedroom Dresser

This photograph, taken by Paula Picker in November 2005, shows the bedroom dresser in the house where Paula's parents, whose last name is Teles, lived for 10 years. There had been 5 feet of water in the one-story home, and there was mold everywhere. Pretty much everything was ruined or turned to "pulp".
