This is California Hospital in Downtown Los Angeles, at its latest incarnation in 1898. The hospital was founded with the help of John and Dora Haynes — you may recognize the ring of “The Haynes Foundation" from many a public broadcasting sponsor shout-out — an enterprising pair of social activists who uprooted from Pennsylvania to settle where the sunshine shone. Mister was a philosopher, civic entrepreneur, medical practitioner and teacher; Missus was a tireless suffragette and ally. California Hospital — now in its 126th year — is one of the many organizations that still benefit from this childless, eccentric and driven couple’s foundation, legacy and goodwill nearly 75 years after their deaths — not to mention the Los Angeles Natural History Museum, Los Angeles City Historical Society, Los Angeles Public Library, USC, UCLA, public radio stations KCRW and KPCC and any deserving, eloquent and well-referenced applicant who applies for a grant.
The hospital has transformed considerably over the last century and a quarter — you can learn more on their site.
