Description: Ivory Soul, a music group from Boston, performs a number at the DARE Concert in Devou Park.
Comment: SHUT THE FRONT DOOR! Plot twist: I'M IN THIS PICTURE. I don't remember going to see them at Devou Park, but apparently their performance in my elementary school gym moved me enough to seek them out elsewhere.

Comment: SHUT THE FRONT DOOR! I swear, this group came to AD Owens when I was in 6th grade. I won their tape in a raffle. Everyone told me this was a fever dream because no one else remembers it. This made my day. I feel seen. Not gonna lie, 6th grade me considered their A side opener Candy Boy an absolute bop.

Description: In unknown place at Old Booth Hospital
Comment: This is a photo of a patient chart rack in the nurses' station on the fourth floor. The metal, spring-loaded, top-opening clipboard chart holders were designed with a rod at the top and stored by hanging them in this rack. The charts were organized in the rack by the patients' room numbers. Please note that room 431 was a four bed ward which is rarely seen in healthcare facilities today.

Description: Piano at Old Booth Hospital
Comment: The organ was positioned in the right front corner of the chapel in 1975-1976, and I believe it was a Hammond Organ. A sermonette was delivered to the nursing students and instructors each morning by Brigadier Lamhe and a hymn was sung. Chapel attendance was mandatory for the hospital's student nurses. I was not only a nursing student at Booth Hospital, but I could also play the organ. Almost every morning while I attended school, I played that organ before and during our chapel service.
