I was browsing the newspaper The Houston Post dated August 26, 1899 and came across a business listing for South Texas Sanitarium located in the Kiam Building, 302 Main Street.

Dr. W.W. Lunn
Dr. E.D. Lunn

The South Texas Sanitarium
Kiam Building, Houston, Texas

The Sanitarium is now fully organized for treatment of all Chronic Diseases, most especially those of hour hot Southern climate, as the doctors in charge have practiced for many years in South Texas. The Sanitarium has the finest X-Ray Machine in Texas, as well as other instruments for treating and diagnosing disease.

A special feature of the Sanitarium is the treatment of Catarrh, inhalations of medicated vapor and the proper application of electricity. Knowing that many having Catarrh, which if neglect, causes consumption, would like to take treatment, but are unable to come to Houston. A Home Treatment has been organized.
