Caption: Early 20th Century open-air school. School children wearing hooded coats in a classroom on the roof of the Mary Crane Nursery, Chicago, USA. The open air school movement was created in 1904 in an effort to prevent the development of tuberculosis in children. It used a combination of medical supervision and teaching adapted to students with pre-tuberculosis. Classes were either held entirely outdoors or in rooms with large open windows. Photographed circa 1900-1920.
