Description
Title supplied by cataloger.
In 1938 Frances Eleanor Smith began organizing a treatment center for children with polio and other crippling diseases and received a donation of a large ranch home in Chino called Casa Colina. It was in operation until 1961 when, due to dilapidated buildings, it was moved and incorporated into Casa Colina Hospital in Pomona.
A boy lays on a slanting therapy table set in an indoor pool at Casa Colina Crippled Children's Home in Chino as a nurse manipulates his legs. Other physical therapy equipment hangs above the pool on straps. Light from the tall windows facing the pool falls over the scene.
