In this 1949 photo, mothers have brought their little ones to the well baby clinic at Pasadena Public Health Department. The department was established 117 years ago and has been serving community health needs ever since.
Pasadena is one of only three cities in California with its own public health department (the other two are Berkeley and Long Beach) and therefore is not under the jurisdiction of the L.A. County Public Health Department. Thank your lucky stars for that!
Many thanks to Pasadena Public Library for the photo.
