If anyone is interested, the community picture is of Carrie Buck and her mother Emma, who were both institutionalized in the Colony for Epileptics and Feebleminded in Lynchburg, VA. Carrie was supposed to be sterilized under VA's new sterilization law and her cas made it to the Supreme Court in Buck v. Bell. In 1927, the Court held up Va's law and sterilized Carrie.

Oh, and I took off the adult content thing... not sure how that got on there...
