Hard to tell if these ladies are nurses or maids, but I'm going to guess that it's 1943 and they're laying out beds on the grounds of what was then the McCormack Army Hospital and what is now the Richard H. Chambers Court of appeals.
Chambermaids at the Huntington Hotel are in a training class to learn how to make perfect hospital corners.
An outdoor TB hospital? Maybe at La Vina? But the maids look too well dressed and too recent.
When World War II started The Huntington Hotel (now The Langham) was rented out by Henry H. or Stephen Royce to the US Army for $3,000 a month. So, maybe Susan C. is correct.Personally, I think it's a photo of preparations for the first debauched tea party of the Ordo Templi Orientis when Jack P., Aleister C. commenced to prance lecherous through the gardens of the Agape Lodge No. 2 and the purple cow roses of Madison Heights. Those poor dear girls. If they had only known.word verification: pasties
airing out the beds & replacing the linens at the Army Hospital after a particularly bad epidemic...flu or smallpox or? sorry, not old enough to be have been there to remember!
