Image of Saint Vincent Sanitarium (also called St. Vincent Hospital or Sisters Hospital) in Beaudry Park, in Los Angeles. Beaudry Park was located near the intersection of Sunset Boulevard and Beaudry Avenue. "24. St. Vincent Sanitarium, Beaudry Park"--text, on item. "Gardens of Los Angeles and Vicinity in Mid-Winter Pierce & Blanchard 569 N. Main Street Los Angeles, California."--text, printed in bottom margin of front of print. Date devised on active years for photographer imprint "Pierce & Blanchard." (Charles C. Pierce and James B. Blanchard). Pierce came to California in 1886 and began his photographic career in Los Angeles, first in partnership with Albert H. Lohn, and then successively with J.B. Blanchard and A.E. McConnell. He established his own studio around 1900. (See C.C. Pierce negative collection, photCL 464.) Blanchard operated as J. B. Blanchard & Company at this same address, 569 North Main, in 1890, so this photograph was likely made before that. (Mautz, C. Bio. of Western photographers, 1997.) The hospital building, also known as Sisters Hospital, was erected in 1884.
