Image of the Week: This photograph shows Trudeau Sanatorium patients Jim, Jerry, Rita, Randy, Maria, and Frances having a "picnic on one of the islands," c. 1946. Patients often explored the area, on foot, by car, and even by boat when their doctors and health allowed. This photograph was taken by patient Betty Kelly while curing in the Schiff Cottage in the late 1940s.
