HENRY FORD HOSPITAL old vintage 1927 photo picture print photograph for sale. This sepia toned old vintage 1927 HENRY FORD HOSPITAL picture photo print photograph for sale is made from a professionally restored Original black and white 1927 HENRY FORD HOSPITAL negative/photo. It is a wonderful very early high quality photographic image of this historic medical structure.

"In 1909, responding to the lack of hospital beds in the city, Dr. William Metcalf organized the Detroit General Hospital Association. The Association included a number of prominent Detroit citizens, among whom was Henry Ford. The Association used donations from its members to purchase a site at Grand Boulevard and Hamilton, and to hire architect William Stratton to design the hospital. Construction on the original seven buildings began in 1912, but the Association soon realized that its $600,000 budget was far too small to complete the hospital. However, in 1914, Henry Ford offered to complete the project and pay off the original donors, in exchange for complete control. The Association accepted, and construction continued. In 1917, it was determined that more space was needed for the hospital, and Ford Motor Company architect Albert Wood was hired to design a new hospital. Contractor Albert A. Albrecht was hired to construct the new hospital, but World War I intervened before construction was complete. In 1918, Ford loaned the semi-completed building to the US government, and it was used as U.S. Army General Hospital Number 36 until late 1919. Construction was completed after the war, in 1921. In 1923, under the direction of doctor Thomas J. Heldt, Henry Ford Hospital became one of the first American general hospitals to establish a psychiatric unit." This is a wonderful quite rare photo from that early era of HENRY FORD HOSPITAL.

The quality of the Jan Kaulins' photographic prints is much higher than we can show within limits of this web site. Slight tonal changes and blurring around the areas of strong contrast are a result of the JPEG compression process, and are not part of the high quality originals.
