The Ewells's

Of course, this is only part of what Bob Ewell's yard would look like, but the more complete description follows:

"what passed for a fence was bits of tree-limbs , broomsticks and tool shafts, all tipped with rusty hammer-heads, snaggle-toothed rake heads, shovels, axes and grubbing hoes, held on with pieces of barbed wire. Enclosed by this barricade was a dirty yard containing the remains of a Model-T Ford, a discarded dentist's chair, an ancient ice-box, plus lesser items: old shoes, worn-out table radios, picture frames, and fruit jars, under which scrawny orange chickens pecked hopefully".

Yea! This is a good picture. It gives me a better insight on what his house would look like. His yard didn't seem like it was the cleanest yard I have ever seen, it was all dirt and contained some items in it! I think the picture did a good job of explaining his house and yard.
