    Why didn\'t they bother to put a date to this clip? They were usually meticulous in this respect. Very interesting, though. The newest building that we see is the Boiler House, with its tall chimney, built about 1933. The school definitely opened in 1932. I would say that this dates from about 1936, the year a booklet on the sanatorium was published
