Notes
Note taped to back of photo reads, "1105. A pattern of loneliness. There's nothing but loneliness and waiting when there's nothing to do, no one to talk to. Our community program for the aged turns this gloomy picture into a busy scene of bustling activity and lively talk. It helps them enjoy their retirement, gain new interests, new friends and enabels them to do the things they never had time to do before. Care of the aged is one of the many local services supported by our (name of local welfare fund), which also raises funds for national and overseas Jewish needs. N.Y. Federation photo by Ike Vern"

Notes
Note taped to back of photo reads, "1110. Streets are not playgrounds. Even the fertile imagination of a healthy child cannot turn dirty streets into clean playgrounds or rainwater into cool lakes. And if the child is troubled or neglected, the streets can become a breeding ground for delinquency. We must bring these children into our Jewish Community Center where they can take part in all kinds of play under the helpful, watchful eyes of trained group workers. The Jewish Community Center is one of the many local services supported by our (name of local welfare fund), which also raises funds for Jewish needs nationally and overseas. N.Y.
