Patients at work in the old workshop at Trudeau Sanatorium, 1908. Patients could take courses in photography, bookbinding, and hand-lettering and illumination. The original workshop first opened in 1905, and in 1909 it was replaced with the much larger Scholfield Memorial Workshop (which still stands today). Mark your calendars: the Art of the Cure exhibit, which explores the use of occupational therapy with tuberculosis patients in Saranac Lake, will close on Saturday, November 13! Don't miss this last chance to see the exhibit at the Saranac Laboratory Museum!
