Sunday school class on the steps of 1st Presbyterian Church in Eagle Rock. Pictured are approximately 52 children, both boys and girls of various ages, as well as seven female teachers sitting in the back row. The church was established on March 5, 1914 and was first occupied on Easter Sunday, April 4, 1915. It later became the Creswell Hall and eventually succumbed to demolition in 1962 or 1963. Eagle Rock is a neighborhood in northeastern Los Angeles that derives its name from a massive boulder at the district’s northern edge, which contains an indentation that casts a vaguely bird-shaped shadow on the rock at certain times of day. In 1906 Eagle Rock became an independent city and was incorporated in 1911 with a population of approximately 600; in 1920, population had grown to 2,250. Just one year later, in 1921, this figure had leaped to 3,800, and by 2005, the U.S. census estimated the population at approximately 27,875 [via]
side view of the Mother Goose Pantry, a restaurant in the shape of a Mother Goose shoe, that is located at 1951 East Colorado Boulevard in the city of Pasadena. Photo shows ‘Mother Goose’ character greeting a large crowd of children. This is the solution to the Mother Goose rhyme: ‘There was an old woman, who lived in a shoe; she had so many children, she didn’t know what to do. She gave them some broth, without any bread; she whipped them all soundly, and sent them to bed.’ - apparently, now everyone can be fed. Photo dated: 1928.
