Dude, Check Out Those Bassinets! Lucky Little Bastards

The caption on this photo from the LA Public Library's online photo archive reads:

Unmarried teenage mother-to-be tries to reach a decision about her future. She wanders up to the nursery at St. Anne's Maternity Hospital on December 17, 1958, and gazes through the window at the babies. What will she do after her own baby is born and where will she go? And where will all these awesome powder-coated steel bassinets end up 48 years from now?
OK, so I may have editorialized somewhat on that last bit. [lg img via lapl.org]
