#5027 From: Old Men's Toy Shop Album Unknown Photographer In "The Eighty Third Annual Report of the A.I.C.P. 1925-26." Picture follows page 21. Caption: Many old people, so long as they are able to get about to do a little work, prefer to live on in their own little rooms, in their own way. To them the A.I.C.P. says "Yes," provides work for them at its Crawford Shops, and if their earnings do not meet their needs, helps them, unobtrusively, over the hard places.
