Abstract

Kitchen on the campus of the Jewish Consumptives' Relief Society (JCRS). Four unidentified men are standing behind tables and they appear to be getting ready to serve food. 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.
