Black and white photograph of family picnic at Brownson House with Mary Julia Workman with eight children. The group stands outdoors on the beach, with a pier visible in the background. Born into a politically prominent Los Angeles family, Mary Julia Workman founded the Brownson House Settlement Association in 1901 and led it for 19 years. The Brownson House assisted underprivileged and immigrant families in the city, providing them with educational, vocational and social programs such as student clubs, Sunday school, dances, and sporting events. Brownson House was originally located in a rented cottage on Aliso St., but moved to a new facility on Jackson St. in late 1904 or early 1905. Anaheim landing, sometimes called Bay City and incorporated in 1915 under the name Seal Beach, was a popular seaside recreation area. The quiet water of the bay was well suited to swimming and rowboats, and during the early part of the 20th century, it was home to a seaside amusement park.
