This Tuberculosis Thursday we're featuring the Santanoni! The Santanoni Apartments were designed by Scopes and Feustmann c. 1912, and operated as luxury apartments for TB patients. This card advertising it as a "hotel" comes from sometime after 1954 and before the top two stories were destroyed by fire in 1973.
In its heyday, single accommodations started at $37.50 a week (approximately $562 today) and included private sitting rooms, baths, telephones, and elevator service.
