Three patients at the Western Maine Sanatorium in Hebron in a picture obviously posed to show the ranges of states of physical health.

The facility treated people who had tuberculosis, a pulmonary disease that previously was known as consumption because patients lost so much weight.

The photo is labeled, "Curtis ? Lane 1929." The "?" is Merle Wadleigh, in whose album the photo appears.
