SIX HISTORIC PHOTOGRAPHS Of The WATSONVILLE SANATORIUM.

[Watsonville, CA ?]: (n. d.). Ca early 1900s? Divers sizes. 4 mounted. All now housed in archival mylar sleeves. All show modest wear. Images generally clear & sharp. A solid VG lot. Item #46709

Here offered a group of 6 early b/w photographs of the Watsonville Sanatorium, also known as the Watsonville Sanitarium. None are dated or credited but all provide exterior views of this small community hospital in Northern California.

The images include:

• 6.5” x 5” photograph mounted on heavy black card stock, sign reads Watsonville Sanatorium, apparent dirt roads, hitching posts, immature plants in front. An identical photo was used in an advertisement that appeared on page 257 of The Official Register and Directory of Physicians and Surgeons in the State California published in 1903 by the California Medical Association. No address is given, but the physician in charge is Dr. P.K. Waters, and the facility is advanced as “A thoroughly Modern Hospital For the care of Surgical, Medical and Maternity patients.” Some faint foxing.

• 6.5” x 5” photograph mounted on heavy black card stock, sign reads Watsonville Sanatorium, apparent dirt roads, hitching posts, larger plants out front, and the edge of a telephone pole seen.

• 8” x 6” photograph mounted on heavy cream card stock, sign reads Watsonville Sanitarium, apparent dirt roads, hitching posts, white picket fence, and a bungalow-type building that looks like a single family home. This is the only image where the building depicted varies from the others and it would appear to be the earliest photograph.

• 8” x 6” photograph mounted on heavy black card stock, sign reads Watsonville Sanatorium, apparent dirt roads, hitching posts, mature plants in front, telephone pole, and raised flag. Nurses in Victorian-style dress appear on the porch.

• 13.75” x 8.75” photograph, not mounted, sign unreadable, building photographed from a different angle, apparent dirt roads, hitching posts, mature plants in front, telephone pole, and a nurse in Victorian-style dress on the porch

• 6.5” x 4.75” photograph, not mounted, sign reads Watsonville Sanatorium, apparent dirt roads, hitching posts, mature plants in front, telephone pole.

All in all, a nice lot documenting this.
