Title: What One Girl Did
From: Social Hygiene Posters
Original caption: Four years ago she saw only her physical handicap, her lameness. Today she is an excellent swimmer and a life saver, also a doctor's assistant. Given a bit of encouragement, physical training, and education, courage came, -- then health, a useful place in the world, and joy in living.
