100 Year Old General Hospital Postcard

This vintage postcard of the former General Hospital in Medicine Hat, Alberta was mailed over a century ago on August 13, 1914 to Wyoming, Ontario - a small town near Sarnia in the south of the province. The message handwritten on the back of the postcard confirms that this person was making their way across Canada on the train that summer.

The postcard really was the text message of its day, and this one would've made the journey back east on the railway. I can only imagine what a different journey that would've been to take 100 years ago. The general hospital on this postcard has long since been demolished, however when it was built it was noted for being the first civilian hospital west of Winnipeg in 1889.
