Creation Date



Blair Sanitarium, a private hospital at 1212 Liberty, now Rothwell, Street, circa 1915. Dr. John Marquiss Blair was the president of the Houston Academy of Medicine in 1915 and served for a while as editor of Southwestern Medicine.

This would now be 1212 Rothwell, midway between White Oak Bayou and the St. Arnold’s Brewery, but the lot is occupied now by support pillars for I-10 eastbound. The building in the distance with the arch over the doorway is 1302 Nance Street (at Richey Street) and houses the restaurant Oxheart.
