State Tuberculosis Sanitarium, Mount Alto, Pennsylvania
This hospital reflects roots in the classicism of Wrenn's 1694 Royal Naval Hospital at Greenwich, near London, England. It is from a 1939 book on projects of the 1930s Public Works Administration, and does not cite the name of the architect. The Palladian five-part plan includes pedimented wings and simple (too) six-story unornamented extensive intervals leading to the central eight-story tower and lantern. Completed in August, 1939.
The book Public Buildings... (1939), from which this image is copied, was deaccessioned from the Chicago Historical Society, ca. 1983, and transferred to Lake Forest, it having originally been part of the library of Chicago architect Barry Byrne, as marked on the inside front flyleaf and the next blank page, as well.
