Nested doors connecting each of the patient rooms in one of the old tubercular wards at Mayview State Hospital, just outside of Pittsburgh, at sunrise.  These doors would presumably allow greater airflow through the building, considered an important part of the treatment of tuberculosis.  Unfortunately, most of this asylum campus was demolished within weeks of this photograph being taken.
Prints available here.
