Image of the Week: Sea Breeze Jr.


Since pediatrics is the theme of the new issue of Stanford Medicine magazine, I have selected an historical image from the Library of Congress on the same subject. This photo was taken sometime between 1910 and 1915 and, presumably, the child was oustide as a treatment for tuberculosis (fresh air was then thought to be a treatment). The photo is titled "Nurse & patient Sea Breeze Jr."
