Three symbolic giants have remained for the past 20 years inside the polio ward of this tuberculosis sanitarium. These iron lungs were once part of a much larger ward, consisting of hundreds of pumping vacuums, aiding in life support for patients affected with the polio virus. In memory of those lost during the polio epidemic of the 1950s.
