Clinical Photographs


The origins and development of this collection of photographs and medical drawings and paintings are not fully documented. It is clear that the collection developed over time and that it was used for teaching purposes. Many of the photographs are mounted on sturdy boards on the reverse of which some information about the subject matter is given. The arrangement of the photographs has been based on (1) the order in which they were arranged when received (2) an original scheme of classification [ please see HB14/19/1]; (3) the numeration which appears on some items; and, (4) the case histories which appear on the reverse of some items. Many of the file titles are based on the subject terminology of the creators of the collection.
