Sometimes I pretend to be normal, but it gets boring so I go back to being myself

I still remember my first ever journey by car when my Uncle Johnny came up Milltown Street and stopped to pick us all up to go for a spin with all his children. We went up the road past Burren chapel and eventually came down the road past the sanatorium and out past the Homestead where my Aunt Elizabeth Harpur lived. I think I saw rows and rows of wooden slatted long boxes the size of single beds, out in the field. It seems that the treatment for TB was to kept outside in the fresh air as much as possible, even to sleep. Please correct me if I am wrong. My Aunt Elizabeth used to offer lodging to visitors to the sanatorium who perhaps had travelled from distant parts. Stanley

I didn't know there was a Sanitorium there
until now.
The area looks lovely surrounded by all those
trees and fields.
Was this just for patients with T.B. or where
there other illnesses then?
