View Full Version : Australian Question - Margareth Sanatorium

12-02-12, 02:16
Has anyone heard of or know anything of the Margareth Sanatorium. I believe it was in New South Wales and it was in operation in 1903.

I have a letter between two siblings and one of them was at this Sanatorium. From a couple of the letters I have read I don't believe it was for mentally insane.

Another mystery to solve!

i guess you could email the state archives of new south wales, and ask about the facility there. they may have records, or know about the place.

As you're in Oz, the quickest way to find out might be to phone or e-mail the NSW "Ask a Librarian" service:

By the way, sanatoriums were usually for TB patients.
