Temperature -1. Classes canceled this morning. I’m just as happy to stay home. I’ll go to the health club this afternoon.
I am obsessing (temporarily, until I finish the book) about Grandma and the nursery. Here are another couple of pictures of the building. I actually got out of the car to take these, and it was brutal. They are from the other side of the building. Grandma wrote that she wanted a building to house 500 children, so that’s what she built. She had gone to New York to inspect orphanages that housed 1000 children. She said if New York could house 1000, Chicago should have facilities for 500. I don’t think they ever had more than 200 babies, and seldom that many.
