A patient’s quarters at the Avon Pine Sanitorium at Wainoni on the New Brighton Road: Picturing Canterbury

The Avon Pine Sanitorium was established in 1904 on Professor Alexander William Bickerton's (1842-1929) land at Wainoni Park for fee-paying tubercular patients who were treated by the open-air method. It was formally opened by Sir Joseph Ward (1856-1930), then Minister of Public Health, and was under the charge of Dr. Cecil Greenwood (b. 1860/1861).
