It is the portrayal of the old mother that is the most noteworthy thing in the picture
23 April 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

She worked in a laundry, she was pretty, and didn't chew gum. She dressed as becomingly as a shop girl. Her old mother, on the way to market with a very tattered apron, met her and her "steady," and the girl was ashamed of her mother. A moment later her mother is knocked down by a passing automobile, and taken into the house. She dies in a few minutes. It's a hard awakening for the girl, and the pain is fairly well pictured by the actress. However, it is the portrayal of the old mother that is the most noteworthy thing in the picture. It is a true and human picture, very worthwhile and commendable. - The Moving Picture World, October 14, 1911
