There were staff children areas, but there were young children as resident patients ,too. Many unwanted babies were put into the mental hospitals, those with physical disabilities, too. Back then, the resources didnt exist. Sometimes they advised letting the "defective "infants starve to death, and not even institutionalize them. The shot of the smaill child's trike certainly puts that all into perspective. Thank God the prospects are better today.
Could be the smaller dining hall of Kitchen O on the eastern side, there was an atrium alongside the hall through which they entered . Looks like that atrium outside of the windows.
The kitchen had dining halls on either side.
Referred to as the "Twin Towers"...were never connected by wooden docks...didn't do your homework!
