Original vintage architectural trade magazine ad for THE TRAVELERS INSURANCE COMPANY of Hartford, CT. Tired Out! It sometimes happens that a woman, on the death of her husband, is left without any means of support. Her duties have not fitted her to meet the problems of making a living for herself and her children, and she has to fall back upon her skill with a needle. Such skill is so poorly paid that poverty and privation stare her in the face. Old 1912 insurance industry advertisement.
