Photo caption reads: "Some of the 100 little girls at the Los Angeles Orphanage who had "Fathers for a Day" on June 10, 1952, when civic leaders, business men and actors gave them an early Father's Day party. Among the "adopted" daddies were actors Wally Ford and Alan Dale, Jr. (next to railing, left); Harold Henry, president of the City Council (center, top); Councilman Edward Roybal (dark suit, center); Councilman Ernest Debs (right center), and novelty musician Jack Spoons (right). Refreshments included ice cream and bubble gum". Los Angeles Orphanage is at 917 South Boyle Avenue.
