Author: [HAZARD - photographer] [Subject unidentified] Title: [MEDICAL DEFORMITIES] [PHOTOGRAPHY] [MEDICAL EQUIPMENT] Cabinet card depicting a woman with deformed limbs in her bed with a large mobility device Publication: Southington, CT: Hazard, undated, ca.
Description: One cabinet card, measuring about 6.5" x 4.25". Though the mount is meant for a portrait-oriented image, this photograph is in oblong format.Some spotting to the edges of the photograph, but still a clear image, on a clean mount - overall very good. The image depicts an adult woman with clearly deformed hands and arms, and possibly without legs. There is a large hand-cranked metal device connected to a series of ropes, which are tied to parts of the mattress. The device must have served the purpose of moving the mattress so that she could sit up or lay down.
