A view of the Wish-I-Ah Care Center from the air. Wish-I-Ah was
built in 1928 as a sanatorium for tuberculosis by Fresno County and
was sold to become a private care center for the aged when T.B.
virtually disappeared in the 1940's. It is located about 3 miles
north of Auberry and one mile north of New Auberry. The San Joaquin
River canyon descends to the left background of the picture.
