In the above photo, you can see the Turtle Fountain, a WPA New Deal sculpture created by Eugenie Shonnard in the 1930’s, as it appeared when it was once a courtyard centerpiece at Carrie Tingley Polio Hospital for Children, photo circa 1970’s.
The facility now serves as the only New Mexico State Veterans Nursing Home in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. Sadly, now it stands broken, silent and in a state of disrepair.
