Bill Wilson and Lois Lose their 182 Clinton Street Home

  As the Great Depression eases and property values rise, the company that owns the mortgage on 182 Clinton Street (below) sells the building, forcing Bill and Lois to move out. Thus begins the couple’s two years of temporary residency in the homes of Hank P. and other A.A. families. Bill and Lois continue carrying the program’s message for the duration of this unsettling period.
