Abstract
From: Women's Work Rooms Album #4029 Unknown Photographer In AICP 75th "Annual Report 1918" (1917-1918), p. 26. Caption: WOMEN'S WORK SHOP. The large majority of the workers are elderly whomen who by reason of age and feebleness (which is often accentuated by other physical handicaps) find all other doors of work closed to them. Others are mothers, usually widows, whose home cares are such that the y cannot work the regular hours required in ordinary industries but who find a few hours spent each day at the Shops opportunity for partial self-support. The work is educational in that stress is placed on the various kinds of sewing necessary in home life.
