Artist's Description: This photograph is from books that where juvenile hall ledgers from the 1940's - 1960's. The ledgers were written by councilors on the daily observations of the children in their charge. The Rorschach patterns that have naturally formed in the books remind one of the psychological impact this institution had on the children detained there.
