Allergy to cow’s milk

1939 Chicago IL Joanne with toys from Barbara Pahlow on Vimeo.

This is a professional photo of my mother Joanne Pease, probably taken somewhere in Chicago. She looks to be around a year old, so this is 1939. I was told she had an allergy to cow’s milk when she was a baby. They were able to substitute goat’s milk. The allergy caused her to scratch herself. This picture shows toys in her hands which were given to her to keep her from scratching.
