Although I might prefer spending time in a hospital that looks like this instead of one of those massive institutions, I would like to make one request: don't carry my stretcher up those front steps. This 53-bed facility was built in 1901 for $21,000 by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace. They raised money to build it by selling hospital tickets far and wide, including to gold miners in Alaska. Many children with polio were hospitalized here during the 1940s and 1950s. The facility was expanded several times, but was finally replaced in 1966.
The back of the card has no message, only the address of Miss Phoebe Stinson of Boston.
