1906 View of JCRS Campus, 1906
Panoramic view of the tents, three buildings and the farm at the Jewish Consumptives' Relief Society (JCRS). Various people are standing in front of the tents and buildings. The JCRS was a sanatorium for tuberculosis patients that was founded in 1904 by a group of immigrant Jewish workingmen along with the support of several leading physicians and rabbis in Denver, Colorado. The sanatorium was located on West Colfax Avenue just outside of Denver. In 1954 the institution changed its mission to cancer research and became the American Medical Center (AMC Cancer Research Center). The sepia photograph is mounted on cardboard.
