In January 1921 people gathered to celebrate the dedication of the San Francisco Building at the Jewish Consumptive Relief’s Los Angeles Sanatorium in Duarte, California. The story of the San Francisco Auxiliary and the dedication of the building, along with a photo (see first image), was featured in the Summer 2014 issue of City News magazine.  This image was one of two that are in the Archives collections. When viewed with the second photo, we get a broader view of the scene and thus gain more information about the day’s events.  Close inspection of this additional image, which provides a more detailed view of the buildings located on the left of the first image, shows signage stating “Welcome San Francisco” and that bunting and streamers adorn the buildings and gazebo.  The top image shows crowds gathered in front of the San Francisco Building. The publication, The Jewish Consumptive and Expatients Relief Association presents the Twentieth Anniversary Edition, February 22, 1934 was the source for information about the San Francisco Auxiliary and the dedication date of the building.
