Caption: OLD HOSPITAL-Pictured is the old Northern Pacific Hospital which stood on the north side of the railroad track at the west end of the railroad bridge. The building was previously called Immigration Hall. The building was divided into two large wards. The room to the east was subdivided into a ward to be used for sleeping quarters for the help and for a kitchen. To the north an addition was built to be used for an office, a drug room and sleeping room for the doctors. At first the hospital was heated by wood burning stoves and had no running water.
Note from Aunt Elsie: Ralph went here when first ill in 1918. George had tonsils out here in 1920 and Ralph had hand hurt…. (can’t read the rest).
