Excerpts from home movies taken of the Western Maine Sanatorium, a tuberculosis treatment facility in Hebron.
The film was part of the estate of Dr. Lester Adams, long time superintendent of the facility.
This section of film shows the facility, the medical staff and a number of patients on sleeping porches and in sleeping rooms and children in the dining room. It is not clear if all the children are patients at the facility.
Bill Sinclair produced the film and E.O. Irish was the cameraman.
