Side view of the Mother Goose Pantry, a restaurant in the shape of a Mother Goose shoe, that is located at 1951 E. Colorado Boulevard in 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.
