Abstract:
Annotation on back: From: Old Men's Toy Shop AlbumDescription: Box 296 Folder 4 #1596 Jessie Tarbox Beals? From: Old Men's Toy Shop Album Used to illustrate undated leaflet (1916 written on it) about the Old Men's Toy Shop in AICP Publications, Vol. 3, 1913-1916. Caption: Joseph F., 76, a printer by trade. Mr. F. had little difficulty in caring well for himself until his age disqualified him for competition with younger men. But for many years he had not been strong and the wage he could earn was too little to provide for the future. His wife is dead and his one daughter is wholly unable to help him or to give him a home.
