Almost Wordless Wednesday/Clifton Springs, NY Sanitarium
Edward James O'Hora 1868-1920
The Sanitarium as it looked at the time my great-great-grandfather Edward O'Hora was a patient, attempting to cure the rheumatism that would eventually lead to his death. People came from all over the country to avail themselves of the sulpher water that flowed near the sanitarium. The "San" still stands today though without it's copper domes, and is housing for senior citizens. Below is a photo of the veranda overlooking Main Street, visible in the top photo. Perhaps Grandfather sat there while he was a patient?
