I may be alone in this but I find the mixture of washing line and barbed wire a powerful image.

Although I’m in danger of stereotyping here, or poverty porn, (after all having a washing line is hardly a sign of extreme poverty, nor is having a low balcony in a higher crime area) but it does spark that bit of anger that people shouldn’t have to live like this.

Cramped, low cost housing, mixing with the social problems associated with crime and the undertow of an idea that even your washing has to be surrounded by the camp’s barbed wire.
