Harris Hospital, Fort Worth

Harris Memorial Methodist HospitalHarris Memorial Methodist Hospital in Fort Worth, Texas. Some of Fort Worth’s finest citizens were born at Harris Hospital, including yours truly! 😉 Mailed in 1950, the linen card has this written on the back:

Dear Mom & Dad,
Just a line to tell you the baby is in the hospital but she’s doing fine. They’re feeding her to build her up. No one can see her but Estes & I.
Love, Doris

Ward County Hospital

Ward County Hospital PostcardThe Ward County Hospital in Minot, North Dakota, presented on this postcard from American Import Co.  I haven’t been able to find out much about the hospital, except that this structure was replaced by a new four-story building in 1918. This thing looks haunted!

St. Luke’s Hospital

St. Luke's Hospital PostcardPublished by V. O. Hammon Publishing, this divided back card shows St. Luke’s Hospital in Chicago, Illinois. It is postmarked December 18, but the year is illegible. (possibly 1915) The message, on the other hand, is easily read:

“I am in St. Lukes Hospital Room B18 being prepared for a plaster paris cast for my spine.
A Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all.”
