Notes: postmarked 1925; "Grace Hospital, conveniently located at London Street and Crawford Avenue, was built by the Salvation Army in 1920 with funds raised by popular subscription. The destinies of the institution are guided by the Salvation Army." In 1918 the Salvation Army purchased the former Ellis home on the southwest corner of London Street (now University Avenue) and Crawford Street which had 28 beds; in 1922 a second wing was added increasing the number of beds to 122; in 1942 a south wing was opened, and in 1945 a north wing was built; in June 1960, a fire destroyed a large section of the hospital and a new five story wing was opened in September 1966; a west wing was opened in September 1985; Grace Hospital merged with Hotel Dieu Hospital on February 1, 2004, a few years before it closed permanently; the postcard is addressed to Mrs. S.R. Miller.
