Artist's Description

Mrs. Lavinski had some rather Libertarian views on the subject of property tax (especially for a card-carrying Wobblie) but that contradiction doesn’t make her attempts to avoid them any less entertaining. A Hungarian immigrant of amazing ingenuity, Zora put her hard work in the factories of Chicago to good use when it came to crafting a solution to avoiding the “damn Revenuers” who drove her batty. Her steam-powered moving tenement more than returned the favor – it was rumored that no fewer than 10 tax assessors found it necessary to take “medical leaves of absence” after being driven mad by their attempts to track down Zora’s property and assess it.
