Mail Boxes Keep the Wolf from Her Door (May, 1939)
I’ve never heard the expression “keep the wolf from her door”, I guess it means to avoid poverty? Or is the wolf something specific, like a bill collector?
Mail Boxes Keep the Wolf from Her Door
Forced to find some way to earn her living when she moved to California for the sake of her son’s health, a North Hollywood woman conceived the ingenious idea of building roadside mail boxes that are miniature reproductions of the homes which they serve. Turned out by hand in her own home workshop, the model-home mail boxes are made to order, following the lines and color scheme of any particular dwelling. Many of the unique mail boxes have been built for the homes of movie stars.
