Medical Photos from Victorian Ireland

September 28, 2010 § 2 Comments

A collection of photographs of patients treated by Victorian surgeon Edward Stamer O’Grady is reproduced for the first time in the latest issue of the Scope medical magazine. See the photos, all from the vast Burns Archive and read the story behind them below.

The cover photo, with its creative use of a mirror to show the posterior view of the shoulder, is absolutely stunning!

Hat tip to Morbid Anatomy.
