Image of the week: "Old Friends and Fresh Flowers are Good Medicine," by Richard H. Ray, showing patients Jack Longhine and Tom Burden. Ray was a patient at Trudeau Sanatorium and Ray Brook Hospital in the late 1930s. He documented patient life with his camera, photographing doctors, nurses, and patients. He compiled his memories of taking the cure in the book "Saranac: 1937-1940."
Ray's photographs are featured in the Art of the Cure exhibit, highlighting the use of occupational therapy with TB patients, at the Saranac Laboratory Museum. The exhibit is closing after this week, so the last day to see it is Saturday, November 13! The Saranac Laboratory Museum is open Tuesday-Saturday from 10AM-5PM.
