Home for Self Supporting Women(Chicago IL. USA)

I found this listing of a Home for Self Supporting women listed in 1900 Chicago.  It was run by Virginia Smith who is enumerated on the previous page.  I'm not sure why the Green section is across the top of the image.  If anyone knows I'd be interested to hear.   It is on a few pages and some of them you can see thru it and read the words North Town.  Almost looks like a digital bookmark.

Year: 1900; Census Place: Chicago Ward 24, Cook, Illinois; Roll: 274; Page: 10B;Enumeration District: 0731; FHL microfilm: 1240274 Img 20 of 26 at's 1900 US Census images for above location
I Googled the city and the phrase "Home For Self-Supporting Women" and found several items on Google Books--among them Women Adrift: Independent Wage Earners in Chicago, 1880-1930 which looks interesting.
