Children in Front of the Jewish Sheltering Home in Denver, circa 1907

Identifier: B063.03.0036.00002


A group of children gather in front of the original Denver Sheltering Home at 19th Street and Julian Street in Denver, Colorado. A man and the matron stand on either side of the children. The Sheltering Home began as a home for the children of tuberculosis patients who came to the sanatoriums in Denver. The Denver Sheltering Home later became the National Asthma Center. The original building was destroyed by fire in 1914. The 36 children living in the home at the time were taken in by neighborhood families until a new building could be erected.
