Insane Asylum Number 3. 1907-08. 

In early 2004, I was able to obtain a copy of the 1907-08 Annual report of the Insane Asylum No. 3. It included several nice photos detailing the asylum activities. The book, of course, does not give any details about individual patients.

The next two photos are enlargements of this patient photo:

Notice the pigeons on the barn!

Number 3, had ten poultry houses each holding 100 hens plus a home for the poultry keeper.

This scene was said to be the Day Room for the "Old Ladies"
