Last month we shared a Tuberculosis Thursday post about a photo album that was recently donated to the collection, and it inspired another wonderful donation! We were delighted to receive an album kept by Lillian Synoracki Wilczak (standing to the left of the sign) while taking the cure at Stony Wold Sanatorium from 1928-1930. Her granddaughter, Karen Jacobs, donated the album to us so that Lillian's experience can be saved and shared as part of our local history.
We can't wait to share other photos from the album and learn more about Lillian's story, but in the meantime, check out these wonderful snapshots of life at Stony Wold. Thank you again for your thoughtful donation, Karen!
Do you have a relative who took the cure in Saranac Lake? We'd love to hear their stories!
